MEC offers senior scholarships

MEC offers senior scholarships

The Macon Electric Foundation is offering eight $500 scholarships to graduating seniors attending any college, university, or technical school. The application deadline is March 27, 2020 by 4:30 p.m. You can find the application and entry details on our website: www.maconelectric.com.

The Foundation is funded through the Operation Round Up program, where MEC members and PWSD of Macon County customers can elect to have their monthly bill rounded each month to the nearest dollar. The difference in change goes directly to the Foundation to assist in their community development efforts, including the senior scholarships, as well as grants to non-profit organizations.

To learn more about the Macon Electric Foundation and Operation Round Up, visit www.maconelectric.com/macon-electric-foundation.

To qualify for the scholarship, students must be graduating high school seniors whose parents are members of Macon Electric Cooperative and are signed up to participate in Operation Round Up on at least one account.
