TrioTel Scholarship Opportunity

Deadline - March 13th, 2023

The TrioTel Scholarship was created because we believe that investing in today’s youth will assist them in becoming leaders tomorrow. We hope that our scholarship will help students to pursue degrees in a variety of fields at colleges, universities and technical schools in the state of South Dakota.

A scholarship in the amount of $500 will be awarded to one graduating senior from each of the following schools; Bridgewater-Emery, Hanson, McCook Central, and an At-Large. An At-Large student is considered a student that lives in our service area but attends a school outside of the TrioTel exchange, or is home schooled while living in the TrioTel exchange. The student’s parent or legal guardian must have service with TrioTel to be eligible for scholarship. 

The Application Deadline is March 13th, 2023.
