VMDAEC Education Scholarship Foundation

We provide scholarships for post-secondary education to deserving but financially challenged students from our member electric cooperative territories.


The application opportunity for the 2017-18 application cycle has closed.  The 2018-19 application cycle (for high school seniors starting college in August 2019) will open on September 1, 2018.

Each year, the Education Scholarship Foundation awards $1,000 scholarships. A combination of weighted criteria is used in the selection process: 40% financial need; 40% academic achievement; and 20% personal statement. Funds can be applied towards tuition, student fees, room and board, or textbooks.
