Scholarship opportunities for area youth
The Seventh Cooperative Principle of ‘Concern for Community’ is universal to cooperatives around the world, yet each organization chooses its own unique way to make it happen. Scholarships are one way TCEC gives back to the community through an investment in local youth. Cooperatives are grounded on the premise of neighbors helping neighbors, while powering the needs of new generations.
