Scholarships

Striving to actively support local students, REC acknowledges graduating high school students for their distinguished scholastic achievement. Through the LEARN (Literacy, Education, and Rural Networking) program, scholarships are awarded each year to qualified high school seniors seeking to advance their career goals by attending a college or trade school. The LEARN program assists students by reducing educational expenses such as tuition, books, or room and board.

The 2017 LEARN Scholarship application deadline has now passed.

Congratulations to the 2017 LEARN Scholarship recipients.
