Fall River Rural Electric Cooperative is once again offering scholarships to local area high school graduating seniors whose parents or guardians are members of Fall River Electric. A “member” is anyone who receives electric service from Fall River, whether at a permanent residence, a vacation property or commercial business. Over the history of this program, Fall River Electric has awarded over a half a million dollars in scholarships to deserving graduating seniors.
Fall River Electric scholarships are valued at $2,400 and are paid in increments of $600 annually. In order to apply, graduating seniors must have at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) and provide a short written essay stating their educational goals and why they are deserving of a scholarship. Applications are now being accepted from seniors enrolled in the following school districts:
- Teton #401
- Fremont County #215
- Sugar-Salem #322
- Madison #321
- Jefferson #251
- Ririe #252
- West Yellowstone #69
Interested seniors or their parents or guardians may obtain a scholarship application by visiting the link “MYCOMMUNITY” on this website and open the “Scholarships” tab on the dropdown menu to download an application.
Applications must be postmarked by Friday, March 29, 2019 or can be dropped off at any of Fall River’s offices in Ashton, Driggs or West Yellowstone. For further information or to answer questions, call Joni Amen at 208-652-7002 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
