Applicants must be accepted, or enrolled currently, as a full- or part-time student, at any accredited two- or four-year university, college, or vocational-technical institute in Georgia. Applicants must be Jackson EMC members or the child of a member and resident of the home served by Jackson EMC.
To receive an application, students should contact their school guidance counselor or visit www.jacksonemc.com/walterharrisonscholarship. Eleven students across Georgia will be awarded scholarships, which are sponsored by Georgia’s 41 electric cooperatives. Completed applications are due by February 2, 2018.
The Harrison Scholarship is named in honor of a leader in the state and national electric cooperative movements.
