CAEC supports continuing education through the Electric Cooperative Foundation Scholarship Program each year. Graduating high school seniors in CAEC’s service area are eligible to compete for four, $2,500 scholarships. Applications are available beginning each November and scholarships are awarded in May.
The program, established in 1997, awards scholarships to dependents of members of participating electric cooperatives. Granted only to graduating high school seniors, the student must attend a four-year college, a junior college, a technical school or vocational school of the scholarship recipient’s choice provided that such school is an accredited institution.
The 2022 scholarship recipients were Charlotte Blencowe of Chilton County High School who plans to attend Auburn University to pursue a degree in Genetics; Noah Carter of Marbury High School who also plans to attend Auburn University and study Agricultural Business and Economics; Hayes Pieper of Wetumpka High School who plans to attend Auburn University of Montgomery to study Pre-Engineering (Civil); and Bethany Singleton of Wetumpka High School who will attend the University of Montevallo to study Mathematics.
