James W. Tyra Memorial Scholarship Application
All public high schools within NDBT’s CRA Assessment Area (AA) will be sent new applications annually. The AA is defined by all of Dallas and Collin Counties. Eligible applicants must be a US Citizen and a high school senior attending a public high school within the bank’s AA. Applicants must be planning to attend an accredited two-year or four-year college or university within six months of graduation. Scholarship awards are given without regard to race, color, religion, age, gender, disability or national origin.
The scholarship is renewable for a total of four years. The total dollar amount for each year will be $1,500 ($750 per semester). A minimum GPA of 3.0 (overall) must be maintained to keep the scholarship active. If a student falls below the minimum one semester, they will have one additional semester to restore their GPA to the minimum level required under this policy. If they are unsuccessful in bringing their GPA up to the minimum, the following semester, they will forfeit any remaining scholarship money. Extreme hardships will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and at the sole discretion of the committee. If a student fails to submit a request for their scholarship funds, the bank will only reimburse for one of the prior semesters. A semester grade report must be received before the money is dispersed for the next semester.
