Scholarship and leadership opportunities are available as part of Blue Ridge Energy’s support of local communities.
To qualify for these opportunities, high school students must join Blue Ridge Energy’s Leadership Track in their freshman or sophomore years, or as early as possible during high school. To join or learn more, go to BlueRidgeEnergy.com.
In February, qualifying seniors involved in Blue Ridge Energy’s Leadership Track will be invited to apply for up to eight $4,000 renewable scholarships for students seeking a four-year degree. Awards are based on leadership performance, resume development and a personal interview.
Additionally, for students in Caldwell County, Blue Ridge Energy helps administer the Charles and Lucille Suddreth scholarship, which awards $800 for a student attaining a two-year degree. Financial need and academic performance are the primary criteria and the deadline for applications is March 31, 2019. Apply at BlueRidgeEnergy.com.
Leadership camp opportunities, as well as college bound workshops, are also available to high school sophomores and juniors in the Blue Ridge Energy Leadership Track. Learn more at BlueridgeEnergy.com.
