ECE is proud to provide scholarships to non-traditional students.

Non-traditional students are eligible for the Power Up scholarship. This includes those already in college or those returning to college after a hiatus; high school seniors who attend homeschool, private educational institutions, or a high school located outside our service territory. Applicants must be an ECE member or the dependent of an ECE member.
Selection is based on academic achievement and community service. If all else is equal, financial need will be the determining factor.
