ScholarshipsStriving 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 will assist students by reducing educational expenses such as tuition, books, or room and board.
To be eligible for a scholarship through the LEARN program, an applicant must:
- Have parents or guardians who are members of Rappahannock Electric Cooperative
- Be a graduating high school senior
- Be planning to enroll in an accredited educational or training institution in the fall of the award year
A scholarship committee selects winners based upon their scholastic achievements, community involvement, extracurricular activities, recommendations and written essay.
