RCEC's scholarship program is generated by contributions or donations and interest from unclaimed capital credits. Dependents of members are eligible to apply for these scholarships. A scholarship committee meets each year in March to make selections and recipients are introduced during the Annual Meeting in April each year. Scholarship applications are mailed to area high school counselors for distribution to senior students that are dependents of members of the cooperative.
New in 2019 Returning College Students can re-apply for a scholarship (amount to be determined according to available funds) on a yearly basis. This application follows the graduating high school senior application.
