The Scholarship program can be funded in various ways. Some of these include grants from sponsoring corporate members, the TCC Board's funding based on the Club's year-end profitability; as well as petitioning for estate giving. From whatever source, helping to provide the children and grandchildren of Club members with funds to further their higher education are noble acts for which this Club is rightfully proud.
