2019 Scholarships Awarded

Your board of directors recently approved awarding six $1,000 scholarships to local students. One scholarship was awarded to a student from each of the six schools throughout our service territory: Brookings, Gold Beach, Port Orford, Bandon, Coquille and Myrtle Point.

Applicants completed an application and an essay describing how a cooperative can build a culture to best serve its members.

They also had to demonstrate academic achievement, and club and community service or leadership participation. Only students whose parents or legal guardians receive electric service from CCEC are eligible.

By giving back and investing in students who will attend school full time at an accredited vocational, technical, college or university this fall, we hope to encourage them to bring their skills back to their community.
