2013 Scholarships Awarded
Fall River Electric awarded scholarships totaling $26,000 to 26 deserving students during the company's annual meeting on June 8th. Scholarships are funded by unclaimed patronage capital. When Fall River is unable to return patronage capital to members who have earned it, those funds are returned to members by way of our scholarship program where students earning scholarships must be children of members. All students receiving scholarships are either graduating high school seniors or continuing college students.

Scholarships are funded by unclaimed or undeliverable patronage capital checks. When we cannot return patronage capital to members, we return it to the membership of the Cooperative by helping fund education for members and their children. You can also choose to donate your future patronage capital checks to the scholarship fund.
Scholarship applications for 2014 will be available in the spring of 2014. Check here for application information. Scholarship winners will be announced prior to Fall River Electric's annual meeting on June 7, 2014.
