Each year, Tri-County EMC awards $6,000 in scholarship funds through the Cooperative Scholarship. Three students from the co-op’s service area each received a $2,000 Tri-County EMC Cooperative Scholarship in June. Funds were awarded based on academics, financial need and a demonstrated commitment to the community in which they reside. Recipients were chosen by an independent panel of judges based on anonymous applications. The next Cooperative Scholarship deadline is April 15, 2017.
