Scholarship award hits record amount

The Cuivre River Electric Community Trust Board is funding a record amount of college scholarships in 2019.

This year, 80 students from the cooperative’s four-county service area are receiving scholarships totaling $74,000.

This is the largest amount of scholarship money awarded in a single year through the Operation Round Up program. A total of 140 applications were submitted. Last year, $69,750 in scholarships was awarded to 70 students.
