College Scholarship Program Open to High School Seniors

Woodstock — Applications are being accepted for a new scholarship program for local college bound high school seniors.

The program is part of Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission’s economic development efforts focusing on investing in the region’s future workforce.

“TRORC believes our region’s future is enhanced by both wise and forward-looking stewardship of the land, natural resources, and public institutions, and also through thoughtful investment in the next generation,” Peter Gregory Executive Director said in a recent news release. The annual Scholarship Program is designed to encourage and recognize high school students “pursuing career and life choices consistent with the vision and values of vibrant and sustainable communities, as articulated in our regularly updated Regional Plan.”

Students who live in one of the regional commission’s member towns are eligible to apply. Up to five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded. Application materials must be received by the Regional Commission by the close of business on May 30. For more information, contact TRORC at 802-457-3188 or go to
