Carteret-Craven Electric Foundation has set aside funds to sponsor community college scholarships for students who are served by the electric cooperative and are attending or planning to attend Carteret Community College or Craven Community College.
Four (4) scholarships are available – two at each college – at $250 per student each semester. The scholarships are renewable for three additional semesters, for a total of $1,000 per student for two years of school. The scholarships are not transferable to any other educational institution.
Scholarships will be awarded according to need (75 percent) and merit (25 percent), which will be based on financial information and statement from the applicant describing his or her educational goals and plans for the future, as well as any special needs or circumstances the student may have. To renew, the student must maintain a 2.5 grade-point average. The scholarship expires after five semesters from award date.
To be eligible, the applicant must live at a residence that is served by Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative.
