Nicholas Patterson Fund

The academic scholarships provided by the Nicholas Patterson Perpetual Fund were established under the Last Will and Testament of the late Nicholas D. Patterson.  Mr. Patterson, who lived to the age of 103, was a self-educated man who during the course of his lifetime developed an admiration as well as an appreciation for those who studied hard and worked to try and achieve their goals through education and citizenship. The Patterson Fund scholarships are not intended to pay a student’s entire tuition but to help lessen their financial burden. Tuition assistance may include help reducing educational costs such as purchase of books, computers, supplies etc.

Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo

Since 1924, the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo has been awarding scholarships to students from Western New York. In 2017, the Community Foundation was one of the region’s largest scholarship providers, awarding scholarships totaling $2.91 million to Western New York students.

Beginning January 1, applications are available online. Between January and March, you can submit the form online along with your grades. By April 1, all grades, submissions and financial information must be uploaded to our site. In late June, award recipients be notified.

New in-house scholarships will be available each Spring semester

**Scholarship has CLOSED for SP-19 semester.**

During the Spring semester, the college will make applications available for scholarships and awards to currently enrolled students for the upcoming academic year. These scholarships are donated by many friends of the college, alumni and Trocaire College employees. Donors take great pride in knowing that their contributions are making a difference in the educational lives of our students.

These scholarships are awarded to current Trocaire College students to be applied towards future tuition expenses. Radiologic Technology students graduating in the summer are eligible for scholarships as the award can be put towards the summer’s tuition. Unfortunately, there are not enough scholarships for every student or every applicant. If you choose to apply for any of these scholarships, please take your time in filling out the application as they are competitive. A committee will read through all of the submissions to decide which students most closely meet the criteria defined in the application.

Applications for these scholarships will be available in late February – please contact the Financial Aid Office at that time.

Scholarship and award winners will be notified via US Postal mail and must return the Thank-You card to their donor before the award will be placed on the student’s account.
