Looking far into the future success of the community, REC is an advocate for supporting the dreams of young adults. That’s why each year your Cooperative awards scholarships to provide a boost to students who need a little help reaching for their dreams. Current college students and local students who plan to attend college or trade school in the fall are encouraged to apply.
Scholarships will be awarded to:
- Seniors in high school for the 2020- 2021 school year planning to attend a college or university.
- Students currently enrolled in a college or university.
- Students planning to attend a career and technical school in 2021.
Scholarship recipients in each category will be selected based upon their scholastic achievements, community involvement, recommendations and extracurricular activities. Recipients will be notified by March 2021 of their award with scholarships being presented before the end of the school year for the student.
Two local students will be chosen to receive a $2,500 scholarship, and 15 will receive a $1,000 scholarship. The applicant or the applicant’s parent or guardian must be a REC member-owner.
Applications are due Jan. 25, 2021. Visit myrec.coop/scholarships to access and submit the application. If you have any questions, contact Brian Wolfe at 1-800-552-3904, ext. 5914 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
