Operation Round Up offering six $250 scholarships in 2023
Brown County REA, through its Operation Round Up program, is offering scholarships to high school seniors planning to attend college after graduation and to non-traditional students.
Six $250 scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors whose parents/guardians are members and live in Brown County REA’s service area or adult REA members pursuing a degree.
Funds for the scholarships come from members who choose to round up their electric bill to the nearest dollar each month. The difference is placed in a trust which is administered by a nine-member board which meets four times each year to distribute funds to charitable causes, individuals and families in crisis and scholarships.
Submit application, letter of recommendation and high school transcript by April 10, 2023 to be considered for a scholarship. Winners will be announced at the Brown County REA Annual Meeting on April 13. A copy of the student’s high school transcript and one letter of recommendation are required. Non-traditional students will need to provide a transcript and recommendation letter. Scholarship funds will be awarded after successful completion of the first semester of college. Interested students can access the guidelines and application below.
