NOVEC and its trade association, VMDAEC, invite scholarship applications

Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative and the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives are offering college, vocational, and trade school scholarships to public, private, and home-schooled high school seniors whose families receive electricity from electric cooperatives. Students may apply to both scholarship programs.

NOVEC and VMDAEC will send scholarship funds directly to recipients’ chosen educational institutions for help with tuition, room and board, student fees, or book purchasing.

NOVEC Scholarship Program will award 14 $1,500 college scholarships to qualified graduating high school students in NOVEC’s service territory in Prince William, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun and Stafford counties, and the City of Manassas Park. The overall outstanding student also will receive the $1,500 J. Manley Garber Scholarship—named for the late Co-op board chairman—for a total of $3,000 in college assistance. 

NOVEC will also award a scholarship to a student who will attend a historically Black college or university and one for a student who will attend a vocational or trade school.

Selection committees will choose students based on scholastic achievement, community service, work experience, and leadership skills.
