Eligible candidates include adult members wishing to further their education, currently enrolled college students and high school seniors. Home-school students and seasonal account members, or their children, are also welcome. Employees and directors of CEC, along with members of their immediate families, are ineligible.
Applicants must be enrolled in a post-secondary educational institution, complete our application, complete application requirements, and submit a 500-word essay. Applicant must receive electric service from CEC and their account must be in good standing. This is a one-time award per individual.
