Cuivre River Electric Scholarship Deadline October 1, 2014

 

Cuivre River Electric Community Trust Scholarships.College students from Lincoln, Pike, St. Charles and Warren counties are encouraged to apply for a Cuivre River Electric Community Trust Scholarship. Fifty-seven students received a total of $28,500 in scholarships from Cuivre River Electric Cooperative (CREC) in June to help them pursue their undergraduate degrees and you could be next!  The CREC scholarship deadline is Wednesday, October 1.

 

Scholarship funds are donated by CREC members who participate in Operation Round Up by rounding up their electric bill payments each month to the next highest dollar. Since the program began in 1997, more than $840,000 has been awarded to help over 1,770 area students achieve their academic goals.

 

Students are eligible to be considered if they live in the Cuivre River Electric service area and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 while attending undergraduate courses at an accredited college, university or technical school. Applicants are required to provide an official transcript and two letters of recommendation, a complete copy of their Student Aid Report (SAR), professional color photograph, write a narrative to highlight their academic achievements and community service, state their career goals and demonstrate a financial need. The scholarship may also be used for adult continuing education courses in their career fields.

 

In addition to scholarships, Operation Round Up funds are used to help individuals, families and community organizations address the needs that cannot be met with other resources. Operation Round Up is designed to provide help in the areas of health, education, youth, home weatherization, and emergency and community services. More than $4.3 million has been awarded to applicants since the Operation Round Up program began in 1997.

 

Cuivre River Electric Cooperative, founded in 1941, provides electricity to more than 60,000 homes and businesses in Lincoln, Pike, St. Charles and Warren counties.
