TBI Scholarships Program

 

 

While both Tau Beta Iota Fraternity and the TBI Alumni Association function primarily as social organizations; our Fraternity’s affiliation since 1926 with Fairmont State University and now Pierpont Community & Technical College underscores the primary goal of our individual members, that is to further their education. 

 

With this objective in mind, multiple scholarships have been established by the TBI Alumni Association, individual alumni of the fraternity, and by other persons in honor of or as a memorial to various Brothers of this fraternity.  While the criteria of these scholarships may vary, the intention of each is to assist individuals in achieving their educational goals. 

 

The TBI Alumni Association administers two scholarships; one is an independent cash award for members of the Active Chapter of the Fraternity. The other is endowed thru Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College; this second scholarship is available to members of TBI and their immediate families.

 

The scholarships administered by the TBI Alumni Association are described below; following the description of each is a link to their respective application forms.

TBI-TURLEY WALLMAN SCHOLARSHIP

Application deadline June 1st

 

History and Background

 

The TBI - Turley Wallman Scholarship was established in 2001 by a group of Alumni from Tau Beta Iota Fraternity with the intention that a perpetual scholarship be available to the Brothers, and the sons of Brothers of TBI Fraternity.  This scholarship was also created for the purpose of recognizing the service and commitment of George H. Turley and Lawrence A. Wallman, Sr. to TBI Fraternity and the institutions of higher learning now known as Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College.

 

The TBI - Turley Wallman Scholarship is an endowed scholarship, with funds maintained by a non-profit corporation affiliated with Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College.  The scholarship was funded by individual contributions freely given by numerous Brothers of Tau Beta Iota Fraternity.

 

In 2010, The TBI - Turley Wallman Scholarship was amended to expand eligibility to other family members of TBI’s.
