To encourage the pursuit of higher learning in our community, White River Valley Electric Cooperative (WRVEC) has allocated funds from Operation Round Up to offer scholarships to local undergraduates within the community. In 28 years of existence, Operation Round Up has given nearly 2 million in scholarship funds.
Candidates for scholarship funds are evaluated on the basis of financial need, overall academic performance, extracurricular activities, and college acceptance. All undergraduate students residing within the White River Valley area are welcome to apply. This $1,000 scholarship is renewable up to a maximum of four years, but students must reapply each year in order to be considered for another scholarship.
Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the application deadline was extended to April 30, 2020. All applications have been received and are under evaluation. Stay tuned for the announcement of scholarship award recipients.
