The Copp trust was created under the Last Will and Testament of Graydon S. Copp, who died July 7, 2002. He and his brother, William Bowen Copp, operated a farm in Charleston and Covington Townships in Tioga County.

“Graydon’s generosity will continue for a long time, as Graydon’s intent for this trust is to provide scholarships to well-deserving Tioga County, PA high school seniors who pursue high education in an agricultural field,” said Deborah Scott, Citizens & Northern Bank Executive Vice President and Trust Officer. The agriculture field has a broad spectrum of possibilities and might include education in the field of animal sciences, agricultural business management, bio-resource, crop and soil science, fisheries and wildlife, food science and technology and general agriculture to name a few.

The scholarship recipients were chosen by the Scholarship Committee, which consists of the Trustee and the superintendents from each school district in Tioga County. The Committee determines the number of recipients and amounts awarded annually. The scholarship awards may be used to help pay tuition, books and room and board charges. Citizens & Northern Bank as Trustee invests and manages the funds in the account and administrates the scholarship application and distribution process.

Applicants for the scholarship are sought each year, with the deadline being April 15th annually. Applicants must be high school seniors accepted to accredited colleges or universities in programs leading to degrees in curriculums directly related to agriculture. In addition, applications must have grade point averages of at least 2.0, have financial need and must have been Tioga County, PA residents for at least six months.

For more information on this scholarship or to obtain an application, interested students should contact Citizens & Northern Bank’s Trust and Financial Management Group at 1-800-487-8784 or their high school guidance counselor.

The C&N Trust and Financial Management Group, a division of Citizens & Northern Bank, maintains offices in Wellsboro, Sayre, Towanda, Williamsport, Coudersport and Canisteo. The division, founded in 1960, provides a wide range of investment, trust and retirement plan services to individuals and organizations.
