Rappahannock Electric Cooperative is accepting applications for its 2019 Community Scholarship program through Jan. 28.

It offers one-time $1,000 scholarships to current college students, current high school seniors and students applying to or enrolled in a trade school.

Eligible applicants must:

  • Have a parent or guardian who is an REC member-owner (meaning they receive electric service from the cooperative) or be an REC member-owner themselves.
  • Be a senior in high school or a college student in Virginia.
  • Be enrolled, or planning to enroll, in an accredited institution or training program.

Applications must be completed online at myrec.coop/scholarships. For additional information on the Community Scholarship program, contact REC’s Brian Wolfe at 800/552-3904, ext. 5914 or community@myrec.coop.

Interested students must complete the application and write an essay. Final selection for these scholarships will be made by a committee based upon the applicant’s scholastic achievement, community involvement, recommendations, extracurricular activities and interest in community affairs. Recipients of the scholarship will be announced by the end of April 2019.
