First Electric Cooperative awards nine $2,000 scholarships to high school seniors living in the co-op’s five districts each year. They are funded through the member-supported Operation Round-Up program.
To be eligible for the scholarships, applicants must be a high school senior whose parents or guardians are First Electric members. They must have a minimum 3.0 grade-point average through their senior year of high school and after graduation attend an accredited institute of higher learning in Arkansas on a full-time basis, which includes technical career programs.
