Press Release: PEC to award $100,000 in scholarships to students and one adult

Deadline to apply is March 21

Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) provides local education support through its youth programs, educational foundation giving, and scholarships. Each year, the cooperative awards $100,000 in scholarships to regional students who will attend the college, university, technical school, or trade school of their choice.

Last year, for the first time, PEC included a scholarship for an adult seeking to further their education. Thanks to the enthusiastic response, the co-op is proud to be including an adult scholarship again this year.

Application and more information available here.

“Supporting the educational journeys of local students and adults is one of the many ways PEC works to strengthen our communities,” PEC Community Outreach Specialist Celeste Mikeska said. “We know the deserving recipients of these scholarships will use their educations to help build a brighter future for us all.”

Each student recipient must be a graduating senior through public, private, or home-schooled education, and the recipient’s parent or legal guardian must be a PEC member in good standing. The adult recipient must be a PEC member or reside in a household served by PEC, and in good standing.

The deadline to apply for a PEC scholarship is March 21, 2022.
