SPEC Scholarship Recipients Head to Class
In May, we awarded $20,000 in scholarships to area students, and now they’re headed off to college to put the money to use. In total, 10 students were each awarded a $2,000 scholarship to use for continued education.
The award is divided evenly over the first four semesters, provided the student meets the standards established for the scholarship program. Each semester, the student must submit records showing they have successfully completed a full-time course load (12 hours or more), are enrolled as a full-time student for the upcoming semester and have maintained a GPA of 2.5 or greater.
These scholarships were available to students whose parent or legal guardian is an active member, receiving electric service from the co-op at their primary residence. Recipients were selected by an independent scholarship committee who evaluated applications based on leadership abilities, community involvement, academic achievement and financial need.
The scholarship program is part of our commitment to the communities we serve and we’re proud to help these deserving students reach for their dreams.
Congratulations to all of our scholarship recipients! We wish you well as you start college this month.
