Victoria Electric Cooperative will be awarding college scholarships to high school seniors throughout our service area. These scholarships are available to any graduating high school senior whose parents or guardian is a residential member or parent is employed by Victoria Electric Cooperative. Annual scholarship applications including rules and regulations are available at the cooperative, and on this website. Application deadline is March 1, 2017.
The Victoria Electric Cooperative youth scholarship program is funded by unclaimed capital credit money that would normally have to be turned over to the state.
Qualified applicants must completely fill out the official application and meet all requirements including submitting their completed application by the posted deadline. Those that do not meet the deadline will not be considered. A panel of independent judges, made up of members, will review and score the applications, with the highest scorers earning the scholarships. Criteria considered include a student’s diversification of skills/hobbies/interests, their past civic and volunteer efforts, demonstrated leadership attributes, and grade point average.
