Now is the time for Tri Star students to begin applying for scholarships. There are scholarships for students attending four year colleges as well as scholarships for those who plan to pursue additional training such as a certification or credential (less than four years).
The Tri Star Skills Gap Grant is awarded to one student in each of Tri Star's programs and can be used for tools, equipment, a computer, books, tuition, etc. - things needed to pursue their chosen career field whether the student is going to college or straight into the workforce. Find the Skills Gap Grant application here and the Jack and Gloria Clouse Skills Gap Grant here for CBI students.
