Students: Apply Now for $1,000 Scholarship

Jackson EMC is accepting applications for the annual Walter Harrison Scholarship – an opportunity for students pursuing a post-secondary education at Georgia colleges and technical schools to receive a $1,000 academic scholarship. Applications are due by February 1, 2022.

Applicants must be accepted, or enrolled currently, as a full- or part-time student, at any accredited two- or four- year university, college or vocational-technical institution in Georgia. Students must live in a primary residence served by Jackson EMC.

The scholarship is merit-based, and students are evaluated on financial need, grade point average, academic standing, scholastic honors and community involvement. Students must complete an application and submit an autobiographical sketch with educational goals.

The Walter Harrison Scholarship is named in honor of a leader in the state and national electric cooperative movements. Fourteen students across Georgia will be awarded scholarships, which are sponsored by Georgia’s 41 electric cooperatives.
