2016 APRO Education Scholarship

Apr 28, 2016

TRIB Group is proud to once again be a part of APRO's Scholarship Foundation for 2016. This year TRIB members and Vendors raised $11,000 to help support the foundation and fund scholarships that will be awarded to rent-to-own employees and their children. Last year, TRIB was able to award scholarships to TRIB members.

The 2016 scholarship amounts and number of recipients will be determined by this year's fundraising efforts.

The APRO Scholarship Fund is a private, non-profit foundation funded entirely by the generous donations from APRO members throughout the country.
