Scholarship through the Electric Co-op Foundation
Tombigbee Electric Cooperative is proud to be a member of the Electric Cooperative Foundation. This was created by the electric cooperatives in 1997 to give back to the communities they serve by providing scholarships for post-secondary and vocational education to accredited institutions for qualifying high school seniors. To qualify, the senior must be a dependent of the participating electric cooperative. The sole decision to who receives the scholarship in each established district will be determined by the Board of Directors of the Foundation. However, the Foundation may enlist the assistance of the electric cooperatives in each district in sharing the applications and information about the scholarships, and may request assistance from such electric cooperatives in gathering and screening the scholarship applications. Such assistance and the final determination will at all times remain under the direction and control of the Board of Directors of the Foundation.
For the past several years, Tombigbee has extended a $1,000 scholarship opportunity to one student from every school in their service territory. The 2022 Scholarship application is posted below!
