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.
Applications are only available online for the 20-21 school year. Students can download a 2021 scholarship application at this time by clicking on the link 2021 ECF Scholarship Application. The deadline to apply is Feb. 12, 2021. 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. CEC will NOT accept any scholarship applications at its office.
The Foundation will send notification letters to all applicants in April.
