During each year, the Trustee will send a letter to the financial administrator of every high school in Walla Walla County. This letter describes the availability of scholarships through the Trippeer Foundation and how students interested in receiving scholarships can submit an application for consideration by the Trustee. The letter also will include all important deadlines for submission of the applications.


ASAP after Jan 1 each year Letters will be sent to all Walla Walla High Schools notifying them of the Trippeer Scholarship Fund and how students can apply.
April 17, 2023 By this date, a completed application package must be e-mailed or postmarked to the Trippeer Foundation.
May 11, 2023 By this date, all applicants who have successfully submitted a complete application will be notified and an interview will be arranged.

To be eligible for a Trippeer Foundation scholarship, all applicants (1) must be students of a high school in Walla Walla, Washington or have already graduated, and (2) must be currently enrolled or have been accepted in a four-year accredited university or college. In making their final determination for who receives a scholarship, the Trustees will also consider:

    These three letters are to be sent directly to the Dr. H.A. Trippeer Charitable Foundation by their writers via e-mail or in a sealed, addressed envelope.
