The Tracy Family Foundation College Scholarship Fund
Deadline to apply: April 22, 2020 3:00 pm CT

The Tracy Family Foundation funds a college scholarship program for Brown County High School graduates. Grant funds for this program are awarded to Scholarship America, the administrator of the program. Since the BCHS Class of 2011, 100 BCHS graduates have been selected to receive scholarships. The Foundation’s goal is for 75% of all BCHS graduates to earn a post-secondary credential within 5 years of graduating. This is a work in progress and there’s still more to do to reach our goal.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

Award

The authorized distribution for new awards will be determined at decisions. Awards may be eligible for renewal. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance (2.75 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent) in a full-time course of study.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients

Financial need is considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any member, officer or staff of the Tracy Family Foundation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
