Adams Electric Awards $11,000 In Adult Scholarships

Adams Electric Cooperative recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to 11 of its adult members to help them continue their education.

The 11 were chosen from among the applications reviewed by the co-op’s volunteer scholarship committee and approved by the board of directors. This is the eighth year for the adult scholarships and the ninth year for youth scholarships, awarded to high school seniors earlier in the year. Both programs are funded with Ownership Rewards (unclaimed patronage capital money) and do not affect member rates.

Adult Scholarships

Adams Electric offers college scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to cooperative members with their names on the account (not their children) who have been accepted into (or are attending) a post-secondary or accredited training program (two-year, four-year or technical). The cooperative works in partnership with the Adams County Community Foundation to administer these scholarships. Applications are accepted each year from May thru July.
