Southside Opportunity Fund Offers $1,000 Scholarships
In 2017, the newly formed Southside Opportunity Fund will award $1,000 scholarships to students served by the Cooperative. This fund was created by Southside Electric Cooperative’s Board of Directors to increase our ability to support the future academic endeavors of students whose primary residence is served by SEC. The fund is supported through fundraising efforts along with proceeds from Hooper Park rentals.
A combination of weighted criteria is used in the selection process: 45 percent financial need, 45 percent academic achievement and 10 percent personal statement. Funds received must be applied towards tuition, student fees, lodging or textbooks.
- Applicant’s primary residence must receive its electric power from Southside Electric Cooperative.
- Applicant must be a high school or home-schooled senior graduating in 2017.
- Applicant must be entering his or her first semester at a college or technical/trade school in the fall of 2017. Proof of admission will be required if selected to receive a scholarship.
