Let SAEC Help Pay for School

Let SAEC Help Pay for School
Posted Dec 17th, 2021

At South Alabama Electric Cooperative, we know that supporting our community takes more than providing affordable and reliable electric service each day. It also means helping our young people become strong leaders for tomorrow.

One way we do that is by providing scholarships to deserving high school seniors. For over 20 years, we have awarded $1,000 Electric Foundation scholarships to local students planning to attend an accredited four-year college, junior college, technical school or vocational school. We’re proud to continue that tradition in 2022.

Any high school senior who is a dependent of an SAEC member at the time their application is submitted and through to their graduation is encouraged to apply. Just visit southaec.com/scholarship to download an application today.

All applications and attachments must be completed and signed, and submitted to:
Electric Cooperative Foundation
P.O. Box 244014
Montgomery, AL 36124

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. 18.

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 $1 million in scholarships to students throughout the state.

This year, 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.
