Tuition Mission scholarships
EAST LIVERPOOL — The Tuition Mission Foundation (TMF) is announcing its tuition award recipients for the 2020-2021 academic year. TMF serves college-bound students in seven school districts in eastern Ohio (Beaver Local, East Liverpool and Wellsville), western Pennsylvania (Midland, South Side and Western Beaver) and northern West Virginia (Oak Glen).
Tuition Mission has made tuition awards totaling $316,250 to 52 students at seven area school districts. The top award is $7,500/student, with most recipients getting this top amount. This is a $500 increase from 2019 – 2020, when the top award was $7,000/student.
Tuition awards are made solely on the basis of financial need. Awards are available for any post-secondary education, from tech and mechanical training to college to graduate school.
Though many recipients graduated from the high schools named for their districts, others were home-schooled or attended non-traditional or independent schools.
TMF was launched in 1962 and has been making tuition awards to students in the area since 1963 (the foundation was known as Dollars for Scholars from 1962 through 2013). In 57 years, TMF has awarded scholarships totaling over $7.5 million. Tuition awards function as interest-free loans. All recipients sign multiple documents promising to repay their awards via monthly repayments once they graduate or discontinue their education.
