This spring Ti-Alliance awarded the first Ti-Alliance Career Training Scholarships. In partnership with the Tony and Jean DiFebbo Educational Foundation, we provided three Ticonderoga High School graduates with more than $25,000 in tuition funding and mentorship to realize their dreams.
Our goal is to encourage people in our community to pursue careers in skilled trades, remove the financial barriers to the education needed for these careers, ensure student success, and hopefully have these students live and practice their trades in our community.
Invest in the future of our community. DONATE to the Scholarship Fund today. It's 100% tax deductible!
The Ti-Alliance Career Training Scholarships will be available to residents of Hague, Ticonderoga, or Putnam. Applicants can be a graduating senior from Ticonderoga High School, a GED graduate, or a post high school graduate that wants a career in a skilled trade and plans to work in the Ticonderoga area after receiving their degree or certification. There is no age limitation.
