- Walton Electric Trust Scholarship- Walton Electric Membership Corporation (EMC), in conjunction with the Walton Electric Trust, is proud to once again offer scholarships for the 2023-2024 college school year.In the spring of 2023, we will award between 30 and 32 scholarships to graduating high school seniors whose primary residence is served by Walton EMC. Each scholarship will be worth $4,000 to students who best demonstrate the EMC spirit of community service, hard work and perseverance. The successful candidate will not necessarily have the top grades in the class, but will have demonstrated their willingness to help others, study hard, and succeed despite any obstacles that they may have had to overcome.
Many potentially good candidates have not applied for the scholarship thinking that they do not have good enough grades to win. Walton has awarded some scholarships in the last several years to students that carried less than a “B” average. The intangibles have proven to be much more persuasive to our judges than just GPA and test scores.
The scholarship will be available to pursue education objectives at any accredited college, university, or vocational/ technical school, not just four-year institutions.
Apply directly to Walton EMC in accordance with the application. The applications are due to Walton EMC by no later than Tuesday, January 31, 2023. There will be no exceptions to the deadline. If you have any questions, please call Evette Jones at 770-266-2309 or email email@example.com.
