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 for graduating high school seniors. 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.
Returning College Students scholarship applications are available for full time college students wishing to apply on a yearly basis and meeting the requirements of the scholarship program. Funds will be awarded according to availability.
