SVEC Scholarship Information

“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest” – Benjamin Franklin.

Since 1992, Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) has awarded scholarships to deserving high school seniors in the region that it serves. These students have earned the scholarships with excellence in the classroom, extracurricular activities, and contributions to the community. In the years since the scholarship has been awarded, the cooperative has given back more than $110,000 to the community.

The goal of SVEC’s scholarship program is to make a student’s dream of higher education become a reality. The only requirements for a student to apply for the scholarship are that their parents, or guardians, must be member-owners of Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative and the student must be a high school senior.

Also, since 2001, the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives’ (VMDAEC) Education Foundation has awarded nearly $500,000 in scholarships to high school or home school senior whose primary residence is served by an electric cooperative.

All scholarships are valued at $1,000.
