Tri-County Opportunities Council 2018 scholarships

At least 12 scholarships will be awarded by Tri-County Opportunities Council to income-eligible students residing in the agency’s service area. The scholarships are worth up to $1,250 and have been made available by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) through its Community Services Block Grant funds. All low-income students, racial or ethnic minorities and previous scholarship winners are encouraged to apply.

To be eligible for the scholarship competition:

The applicants must be attending an Illinois accredited post-secondary educational institution of higher learning during the fall of 2018.
