Scholarships Available to Lineworkers’ Families

Children of lineworkers living in North Carolina interested in pursuing a college education can apply for one of three scholarships from The Fallen Linemen Foundation. The organization was founded in 2004 to provide financial support to electric utility linemen injured while on the job, as well as to supporting organizations and institutions.

Through fundraising efforts, the Fallen Linemen Foundation established the scholarship program to reflect its belief in education and career development. The three $2,000 scholarships will assist with tuition, fees, books and other related expenses. Those interested in applying can find more information and applications at; the deadline for applying is June 30, 2021.

A Logo with Meaning

Within the Fallen Linemen Foundation logo are the letters “FL,” honoring all fallen linemen. An unbroken white line symbolizes the foundation’s unwavering support of lineworkers. The logo’s diamond shape is a nod to the donors who make that support possible, and the Carolina Blue color is a link to NC Jaycee Burn Center at UNC Health Care, as a thank you for all they do in caring for injured lineworkers and all burn victims.

Additional scholarship opportunities are available to qualifying students enrolled in an electrical linemen program — contact foundation Board President Kevin Dyson at for more information.
