Seniors who are planning to attend college or a trade school this upcoming fall have a chance to receive financial support.
Scholarship applications are being accepted by Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative (NOVEC) and the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC), according to a release from NOVEC.
Until February 28, seniors may apply for the $1,000 scholarships VMDAEC is awarding.
To be considered, the parents or guardians of the applicants must be members of one of 15 electric cooperatives that are located in Delaware, Maryland or Virginia, such as NOVEC.
VMDAEC will consider the applicants’ personal statements, academics and financial need when making its selection.
Students can find the guidelines and apply on the VMDAEC website.
They may email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
Seniors from Manassas Park and Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William and Stafford counties have an opportunity to receive $1,500 scholarships from NOVEC.
In addition to filling out the application on NOVEC’s website, students must submit two letters of recommendation, an autobiographical essay, and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or ACT scores.
They should also show participation in activities outside of school and have a 3.5 grade-point average (GPA).
NOVEC scholarship applications are due by March 15.
