One of the best investments a community can make is in education. That's why Cherokee County Electric Cooperative has awarded more than $120,000 in scholarships, in the past four years, to local students.
In 2021, CCECA will award 20 eligible graduating Texas high school seniors, current college and technical school attendees with a Scholarship of Excellence for academics. Each scholarship is worth $1,000 and is intended for Texas students who will pursue a bachelor’s degree at a university, college, community college, junior college or trade school.
Applicants are judged on completeness of application, financial need, academics, school and community activities, letter of recommendation and a short essay about their leadership, ambitions and more. Recipients are selected by a seven-member Scholarship Selection Committee appointed by the Board of Directors. Funds for the scholarships are from unclaimed Capital Credit retirements.
For any questions please contact Brandy Walker at 903-683-2248 ext. 3061 or email at email@example.com. Applications are due February 28, 2021.
