# Supporting and encouraging students seeking careers in vocational trade fields
TCI desires to support and encourage high school seniors who plan to pursue an associate degree or a certification in a vocational trade field. With this in mind, we will be offering two scholarships to be given in May of each school year. In honor of TCI's Founder, the Kenneth Bice Vocational Scholarship will be awarded to well deserving students.
Each month a senior student enrolled in their local high school vocational trade program will be selected to be recognized as the TCI Student of the Month based on the qualifications listed below. They will be recognized with an award of recognition and a Visa gift card the month they are selected. The students’ names along with a photo will be placed on TCI webpage and their social media pages. Each student selected will have a short questionnaire/essay to answer and agree to a media release. At the end of the school year, two students will be selected to receive a scholarship to apply to their educational cost as they further their education in their chosen field.
