West Oregon Electric Cooperative, Inc. is proud to announce we are offering our VOLTA scholarship to encourage graduating high school seniors, or recent graduates to seek training and employment in the utility outside lineworker field. The Cooperative will award one scholarship of $1,500.00 to a deserving graduating senior or recent graduate who reside in a home served by West Oregon Electric. They must use this scholarship to attend the VOLTA training academy.
We need your help to get the word out about our scholarships. We would really like to encourage students who enjoy working outdoors, and would like to pursue a career in utility linework to apply. Their GPA will not be as important as their goals and motivation to succeed in life.
To apply, contact your high school counselor or West Oregon Electric. The application form as well as all instructions are now available, please visit our website at westoregon.org (go to the news tab and click on scholarships) to print the forms. The information and forms will also be available at the front desk in the WOEC office. The deadline for receiving completed applications is April 15th by 5:00 PM.
