Ramsdale Scholarship

What is the Edward Ramsdale Scholarship Fund?

Who can apply for this scholarship?

Students attending Troy High School should apply in the spring of their senior year.  To receive a full share of the scholarship, students need to attend Troy Junior Senior High School continuously from grade 8-12. Partial scholarships are awarded to students who have not attended school in Troy for the required five years. 

Where can the scholarship be used?

The scholarship can be used at any institution of higher learning or vocational school that is fully accredited and recognized by the US Department of Education. 

What can the scholarship money be used for?

Scholarship money received through the Edward Ramsdale scholarship fund may only be used for the student’s tuition, fees, room, board, books or other direct expenses pertaining to the student’s education.
