Scholarship applications now available for 2020
New scholarship application deadline: April 22, 2020.
Due to the extension of the statewide closing of schools through at least April 6, the deadline for submission of Brighter Future Scholarship applications has been extended to April 22.
Applications for Valley REC's Brighter Future Scholarship Program are now available. The co-op will award up to 15 $1,000 scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year to eligible students who apply. Adults returning to school to pursue further education or retraining can also apply. Previous Brighter Future scholarship recipients are not eligible. Applications and all required information must be mailed to Valley Rural Electric Cooperative or delivered in person to one of our offices by April 22, 2020 (postmarked by that date if mailed).
The money to fund this initiative comes from unclaimed capital credits refunds that previously had to be turned over to the state treasury. Thanks to the efforts of the cooperative's political advocates, those funds can now be kept in our local communities.
