If you are a senior in high school and the dependent of a CEC member, be sure to check out the scholarship opportunities available through the Electric Cooperative Foundation. The deadline to apply is Feb. 14, 2020.
The CEC board of trustees is committed to education. That’s why CEC provides multiple scholarship opportunities for high school seniors who are looking to further their education at college or technical college.
CEC awards two $1,000 scholarships (one for a senior heading to college and one for a senior heading to technical college) at each school served by the cooperative. These schools include Red Level, Kinston, Brantley, Samson, Pleasant Home, and Straughn. The primary requirements to apply for a scholarship are the applicant must be the dependent of a CEC member and a senior in high school.
These scholarships are given in addition to the two At-Large $1,000 Scholarships (one for a senior heading to college and one for a senior heading to technical college) that are available annually to qualified high school seniors attending a school not served by CEC.
Printed scholarship applications are available from guidance counselors each year, usually be mid-November. Students can go ahead and download a 2020 scholarship application at this time by clicking on the link 2020 ECF SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION. This year’s deadline to apply is Feb. 14. It’s important to remember that all applications must be submitted and received at the Electric Cooperative Foundation in Montgomery, AL, each year no later than the stated deadline.
The Foundation will send notification letters to all applicants in April.
