Technical Scholarship Application

With 80% of today’s new jobs requiring some sort of technical post education, Coastal Electric Cooperative offers the gateway to needed training in engineering, aerospace, biomedicine, technology, logistics, robotics and other evolving vocations important to Georgia’s employers throughout the state. Our scholarship programs offer students access to the training and skills needed to compete in the global market. They are one of the ways we support our local communities and represent a significant investment by our members.

We are pleased to offer this renewable technical college scholarship to students of all ages pursuing a diploma, degree or certificate program from any of the 88 campuses of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) or a recognized electric lineman school in Georgia.

There are three windows of opportunity to apply throughout the year. Our deadlines are May 1 for Summer semester, July 15 for Fall and December 15 for Spring.

Eligibility Requirements
Applicant must provide the admission category requirements of a “Regular Status” student or a “Pending Admit Status” (high school seniors only), meet all requirements for admission into a selected program, and be eligible to take all courses in the program curriculum.

Applicant must have a home mailing address within Coastal Electric Cooperative’s service area, which is south Bryan, Liberty, Long or McIntosh counties. The applicant does not have to be a customer of Coastal Electric Cooperative.

Full-time enrollment in a certificate or diploma program is not required and students are not required to graduate from high school with a specific GPA. However, they must provide proof of a postsecondary cumulative 2.0 GPA, at certain checkpoints, in order to maintain eligibility for scholarship renewal.

Scholarships are paid in full to the student at the beginning of the school semester upon verification of “Regular Status” acceptance by the technical college.

Except for routine breaks in scheduled terms, attendance to the technical college must be contiguous throughout the award year or until a certificate of completion is obtained.
