The North Arkansas Electric Cooperative member-funded Operation Round Up® program awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to local graduating high school seniors each year. In 2023, 14 students were awarded $1,000 scholarships, and three students were awarded $4,000 scholarships to be disbursed in $1,000 installments for up to four years.
NAEC is accepting applications now for the 2024-2025 school year. Applicants must mail or deliver the typed application to NAEC by April 11. They must include a transcript and three letters of recommendation.
To be eligible for the scholarship, high school seniors must graduate at the end of the 2024 school year, and their parents or legal guardians must be NAEC members. Applicants also must have a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale through the first semester of senior year. The scholarship must be used to attend an accredited institute of higher learning on a full-time basis. For more information, please contact Tori Moss at 870-895-6210 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
