A seamless process

Tahoe Truckee donors believe in the power of supporting our future leaders. From 2017 to 2024, local scholarships have increased from $264,250 to more than $1.5 Million!

TTCF makes the application process as seamless as possible for those donors who want to participate in our process! Since 2017, we have provided software to streamline the individual written application process into an online common application– free of charge to all participating local scholarship providers. This allows local students to apply for multiple scholarships — managed by TTCF and other local groups — through a single application. When a scholarship requires supplemental information, it alerts the student and ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed. We provide the software, manage the application process, set up the individual committees, and assign the eligible applications to each reviewer. While each scholarship committee runs its own independent review and decision process, the committees collaborate to ensure funds are distributed equitably among applicants.
