The second available scholarship is sponsored by Calhoun County Electric Cooperative itself. For 2021, three $1,000 scholarships and three $500 scholarships will be awarded to six (6) successful applicants, for a total of $4,500 available. Any student who is a dependent of a Calhoun County Electric Cooperative member is eligible to apply for the scholarship. Applications are due on Friday, April 2, 2021.
These scholarships are considered an investment in the economic future of rural areas. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, and a statement of education and career goals. The scholarships must be used for educational costs, and the student must attend college in the fall of the school year for which the scholarship is awarded.
