Home Page About Us Grants Scholarships Programs Ways to Give  



Wilbur C. and Betty Lea Henderson Since 2002, TCF has changed the lives of many local students through our annual merit-based scholarship award program. While most scholarship recipients are first-time college students, we also have a history of assisting adults striving to complete or modify their educational goals. TCF Scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree in an allied health profession and who currently live in the TCF Service Area. When initiated, it was the ultimate goal of the scholarship program to have TCF Scholars return after entering the workforce to directly improve the lives of other TCF Service Area residents. After nearly 15 years of awarding scholarships, this model is robust and TCF Scholars are living and working within our Service Area, volunteering with TCF, and acting as peer mentors for new generations of TCF Scholars.

Since 2015, TCF has partnered with the Wilbur C. and Betty Lea Henderson Foundation to award scholarships to qualified applicants with plans to enter the nursing field. Through generous donations to the TCF scholarship program, the Wilbur C. and Betty Lea Henderson Foundation has honored the legacy of Wilbur C. Henderson and wife Betty Lea Henderson, their commitment to education, and Betty's own profession of nursing. We at TCF extend our gratitude to the Henderson Foundation for their financial support of Delaware County's finest future nurses!
