Scholarships

The CEC board of trustees is committed to education. That’s why the co-op offers multiple scholarship opportunities for high school seniors who are looking to further their education at college or technical college.

Each year, CEC offers two $1,000 scholarships (one for a senior heading to college and one for a senior heading to technical college) at each high 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 offered 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 schools not served by CEC.

This year, CEC awarded a total of $12,000 in scholarships to qualifying high school seniors. Congratulations to the 2024 ECF scholarship recipients shown below, and to all the members of the Class of 2024. CEC wishes you the best of luck in all your future endeavors.
