Coastal scholarship deadline March 30
Placeholder Image
The Coastal Electric Cooperative Foundation is accepting applications for the 2007 Foundation Scholarship.
The foundation will award six $1,000 scholarships in May to help people further their education.
Residents of south Bryan, Liberty and McIntosh counties who are graduating seniors, college students or adult students returning to school are eligible.
The scholarships are made possible by Coastal’s Operation Round Up, a program in which our members voluntarily round their power bill up to the nearest dollar and the change is used for charities.
Scholarship applications and supporting documents must be received at Coastal’s office by March 30. Applications can be downloaded at or call Coastal at 884-3311. Applications will be judged on the basis of involvement in community service, school and/or work, academics and financial need.
Applications and supporting documents should be sent to: Attn: Scholarship, Coastal Electric Cooperative, P.O. Box 109, Midway, Ga. 31320 or dropped off at the Coastal Electric on Highway 17 in Midway.
Since 1993, the foundation has awarded more than $500,000 to help with the health, safety, education, shelter and food needs in Bryan, Liberty, Long and McIntosh counties.
