About the Trevor Ball Memorial Scholarships
The Trevor Ball Memorial Scholarship was established by friends and family of Trevor Ball to help both freshmen and under graduate college students overcome the financial obstacles that challenge many students attempting to earn a college education. These scholarships are awarded in memory of Trevor Frank Ball, a well rounded young man who left this world much too soon, but not before having a profound impact on many of the people he encountered. Trevor worked very hard for his success and was well on his way to doing something positive in this world. The fund recognizes that there many young people like Trevor who have the potential to do something extraordinary with their lives. We would like to recognize and reward these exceptional young people for exhibiting traits that we feel are important to a successful and civil society.
The scholarship is strongly weighted in favor of students who exhibit strong moral character, a solid work ethic and leadership qualities. The scholarship require written applications, requested documentation, written statements of academic purpose, and possible in-person interviews. All awards are for school related expenses and will be paid out to the University attended or distributed at the discretion of the Fund’s Board of Directors. In the event the primary scholarship winner rejects his or her award, an alternate will be chosen by the selection committee and Board of Directors.
