2014 Scholarships Awarded

Fall River Electric awarded scholarships totaling $13,000 to 26 deserving students during the company's annual meeting on June 7th. 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.
