This year, Beauregard Electric
Cooperative, Inc. (BECi), is pleased to offer ten one-year scholarships, valued
at $1,500 each, to students who reside on BECi service lines. The scholarship
is open to first-time college students and current college students who meet
requirements. The winners will be selected at the BECi Annual meeting held
Saturday, March 28, 2015, by a random drawing.
The student does not have to be present to win. Applicants can apply online at www.beci.org,
pick up an application at any of the BECi offices or at local schools, or mail
in the application published in the January issue of Louisiana Country. Applications must be postmarked by Friday,
February 27, 2015.
Applicants must be a BECi member or a
child or a legal ward of a BECi member who has been a member in good standing
for at least 12 consecutive months as of March 1, 2015. The scholarship monies can be used by students
to attend, on a full-time basis, any Louisiana accredited institution of higher
education. A complete list of
requirements can be found at www.beci.org.
is the 22nd annual scholarship offering through BECi. The scholarship funds are not taken from
normal operating funds, but from BECiís Share Program and unclaimed checks.
Through legislative changes made in 1993, unclaimed checks were allowed to
remain in the scholarship funds to assist students within the BECi service area
rather than forwarding the monies to the stateís general treasury fund.
