Need money for college? SAEC CAN HELP!
South Alabama Electric Cooperative is dedicated to supporting our community by presenting scholarships to deserving high school seniors. For over 20 years, we have awarded $1,000 Electric Cooperative Foundation scholarships to students planning to attend an accredited four-year college, junior college, technical school or vocational school.
SAEC is now accepting applications for the 2020 Electric Cooperative Foundation Scholarship, which is open to any senior who is a dependent of an SAEC member at the time their application is submitted and through to their graduation.
If you would like to apply or you know a student who should be considered, visit southaec.com/scholarship to download an application today.
Applications must be signed by both the student applying for the scholarship and the parent or guardian of the applicant. Completed applications must be received at the ECF office no later than Feb. 14, 2020.
The Electric Cooperative Foundation was established in 1997 as a way for Alabama electric cooperatives to give back to their communities. Since then, the foundation has awarded more than $891,000 in scholarships to students throughout the state.
In 2020, the foundation will award scholarships to students in each of the 21 districts established by the ECF’s board of directors. While the board may ask SAEC to offer input on the applications it receives, the final decision for all scholarship recipients lies with the foundation’s board.
