October 19, 2015

 

Ellisville, MS - Forty-six JCJC students were awarded scholarships, represented in a ‘Big Check’ Presentation, funded by Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association’s new “Round Up for Education” program.  In total, 209 Community/Junior College students with $975 each in scholarships.  

 

Scholarships were available to members, their spouses or dependent children who are enrolling for their first semester at a Mississippi community/junior college this fall and are participating in the “Round Up for Education” program within PRVEPA’s 12-county service area, which serves more than 48,000 meters.

 

Since the “Round Up for Education” PRVEPA Scholarship began three years ago, more than $617,000 has been collected and deposited in an account overseen by the Greater Pine Belt Community Foundation. At least ten percent of each year’s funds are set aside in an endowed fund for future use. The remaining money is divided equally between the number of eligible applicants, resulting this year in 209 scholarships worth $975 per student (the maximum award per the program’s guidelines is $1000). In the program’s three years, more than 550 students have now received scholarships.
