BECi Scholarship Program

To read about the most recent group of scholarship winners, click here.

Each year Beauregard Electric randomly selects students within its service area to receive a scholarship to attend an accredited Louisiana university or technical school.. These funds were made possible through legislative changes in 1993 to allow unclaimed funding to stay in our communities assisting families to further their education. Since its inception, BECi has awarded 138 students scholarships totaling more than $185,000.
 

High School seniors and full-time college students are eligible to win a scholarship.
