It’s scholarship season!

Don’t miss these opportunities to fund your future! Visit our website for more info and to apply.

Educational opportunities like these are funded by Georgia’s electric cooperatives and Coastal Electric members who want to invest in local students because they see the value they bring to the community. Funding for foundation scholarships comes from Coastal Electric members who allow their electric bills to be rounded up to the next dollar through Operation Round Up. Those nickels and dimes are pooled together and invested back into the community through the Coastal Electric Cooperative Foundation.
