Economic Development Scholarships
Electric Co-op Foundation
Tombigbee Electric Cooperative is proud to be a member of the Electric Cooperative Foundation that was created by the electric cooperatives of Alabama in 1997 in an effort 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. The Foundation awards scholarships to dependents of members of the participating electric cooperatives in each of the 20 districts established by the Foundation’s Board of Directors. The sole decision as to who is to receive the scholarship in each established district will be determined by the Board of Directors of the Foundation. However, the Foundation may request or enlist the assistance of the electric cooperatives in each district in disseminating the applications and information about the scholarships, and may request assistance from such electric cooperatives in gathering and screening the scholarship applications, although such assistance and the final determination shall 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. Keep a watch on this page for next year's scholarship application.
