January 10, 2013
This April, EREC will award scholarships to graduating seniors in Escambia County and Santa Rosa County whose parent or guardian is a member of the cooperative. A total of two scholarships, one in each county, of $4,000 per student will be offered. The students must show proof of enrollment and maintain a GPA of 2.5 to continue to receive the funds each year.
Seniors in EREC's service area should check with their high school guidance counselors for scholarship applications. Applications can also be downloaded from the erec website. Deadline to submit scholarship application is March 1. Winners will be announced at EREC's Annual Meeting on April 27.
This is EREC's sixteenth year of offering scholarships to high school seniors. In the past, those capital credits issued by EREC that were unclaimed had to be turned over to the state. But state legislation now allows such funds to be deposited into a qualified, educational charity fund. The EREC membership voted to use these funds in the form of scholarships for graduating seniors in EREC's service area.
