The People's Trust Foundation Scholarship

Since 2007, People's Trust Foundation has given out scholarships to deserving high school seniors to help them attend college. In 2017, the Foundation renamed the scholarship to honor of our former People's Trust Board of Directors for their exemplary service, remarkable commitment and unwavering dedication. There will be four scholarships in the amount of $2,500 awarded.

If you are currently a college student with a minimum of 30 credit hours and you are a member of People’s Trust, you may be eligible for this $5,000 scholarship.
