Tri Counties Bank Endowed Scholarship Fund
This fund was established by the Board of North Valley Bank in memory of Don Carter, who served as President and CEO of North Valley Bancorp and North Valley Bank from 1986 to 1997. The fund provides scholarships to graduating high school seniors throughout California who are pursuing higher education. In 2014, the fund became the Tri Counties Bank Endowed Scholarship Fund with the completed merger between North Valley Bancorp and Tri Counties Bank.
The Tri Counties Bank Scholarship program seeks to advance higher education for community-minded students. Tri Counties Bank competitively awards $1,500 scholarships to students attending a trade school or a 4-year college/university and $1,000 for those attending community college. Awards will be made to higher education-bound, economically-challenged high school seniors who demonstrate a keen interest in public service, community engagement and business entrepreneurship – the three pillars of Tri Counties Bank’s mission to help to uplift people of all races, cultures and ethnicities – especially our economically-disadvantaged youth.
Additionally, Tri Counties Bank offers a merit-based scholarship opportunity for graduating, higher education-bound, high school seniors who display outstanding achievements in academics, community service, or business entrepreneurship.
