Ohio students can apply for the Thomas J. Seefred Trust Scholarship

graduation cap

Twenty-five years ago, Thomas J. Seefred, of Struthers, Ohio, created the Thomas J. Seefred Trust. It is a perpetual fund that will award scholarships up to $3,000 each to college students between 18-25 years of age who are suffering from Juvenile Diabetes.

The college student must be successfully completing a standard curriculum leading to a bachelor’s degree at an accredited junior college, college or university. Current high school students are not eligible.

This scholarship is open to Ohio residents with preference given to qualified applicants from Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana Counties in Ohio.

All scholarships will be awarded by the Trust and will be based on academic promise, personal statement, recommendations and financial need.

Applications can be printed from the Trust‘s website at www.seefredtrust.org. Scholarship applications must be postmarked by June 1. Scholarship recipients will be notified after July 1. For more information, please contact Karen Leetch at (330) 540-3551.
