BEC scholarship deadline approaches

Contributed

Each year Bandera Electric Cooperative offers scholarships to eligible high school seniors and currently enrolled postsecondary students. BEC is committed to the education of our members and their children—the leaders of tomorrow. We encourage our members and their children who are graduating seniors or current college students to apply for the 2017-2018 Bandera Electric Cooperative Scholarship.
Since 1999, Bandera Electric Cooperative has awarded more than 170 scholarships totaling more than $200,000. This year, Bandera Electric Cooperative will award ten $2500 scholarships. Recipients of the scholarships will be chosen based on the following:
• Financial necessity
• Written essay
• Participation in community and school activities
The recipients are chosen anonymously by a scholarship committee comprised of Bandera Electric Cooperative members and will be announced at local graduation and award ceremonies.
Please visit our website to complete an application at BanderaElectric.com/YouthPrograms. Applications are due by Wednesday, March 1.
Bandera Electric Cooperative currently serves nearly 24,000 members and provides electric service to more than 34,000 meters in a seven county territory in Texas Hill Country.
As a member-owned cooperative, BEC continually searches for new, innovative programs to promote energy efficiency and quality member service. Find more information about BEC at BanderaElectric.com or by calling 1-866-226-3372.
