Are you a local community college student? If so, you may be eligible for a scholarship from the Carteret-Craven Electric Foundation to help you meet your education goals.
The foundation will award scholarships valued at up to $1,000 each to four local community college students beginning in the fall. Two students at Carteret Community College and two at Craven Community College can earn $250 a semester for a total of four semesters of study.
Scholarships will be awarded according to need (75 percent) and merit (25 percent). To be eligible, the applicant must live at a residence that is served by Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative. Additional eligibility requirements and applications are available at the financial aid offices at both community colleges, online or at the co-op’s office in Newport or Havelock.
The completed packet must be received by CCEC by 5 p.m. on April 30. Since 2005, the foundation has awarded more than $54,000 in community college scholarships to 54 deserving students. Will you be next?
