The Tour de Kingston Scholarships are designed to offer traditional students assistance in furthering their education. TDK also offers the same opportunity to those who are other than traditional in their educational enhancements. The Scholarship is available for high school students who are graduating and attending college, adults returning or starting college, vocational training, certification course work and more. It is designed to be inclusive rather than exclusive. Applicants submissions will be reviewed and considered. Scholarships are often in the $500 range but have been more or less based on need and fund availability.
Students have used the scholarships for books, tuition, and other college associated costs. Others have used the scholarship for Bicycle Mechanics School, training for community enhancement programs and more. Applicants are considered and prioritized by benefits they bring to the community.
