For High School students
Each year at the end of our Annual Meeting, we award two $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors. A parent or guardian must be present at the meeting to register for the scholarships and to accept the award.
Once a year, Broad River Electric makes it possible for four high school juniors to join dozens of other South Carolina students on either the Washington Youth Tour or the Cooperative Youth Summit. Both are all-expenses-paid educational trips sponsored by electric cooperatives.
High school juniors who'd like to apply should call toll-free (866) 687-2667 for more information or email Josh Crotzer.
