Tri State Scholarships are supplemental scholarships. This means that Tri State will pay AFTER all other scholarships and grants 

have been applied to the student's account. Payments will be made directly to the school once we receive billing for the student. Tri State funds may ONLY be used for items billed through the college/university, such as tuition, books, necessary supplies (must be approved by Tri State), fees, on-campus meal plans, and/or dormitory. These items may vary by school. Some schools are able to bill for books and supplies, and some are not.

Tri State will not be billed and will not pay if a student's charges are fully covered by other scholarships and grants. Again, our 

scholarships are supplemental. Tri State funds undergraduate degrees in any field and graduate degrees in education only. Tri State does not fund classes or degrees that are entirely online (with the exception of online graduate programs in Education at a university in Mississippi or at the University of North Alabama). (Application is at the bottom of this page labeled TSEF) Deadline April 15
