Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative has announced it will award two scholarships for high school seniors seeking trade school education.
Not every student wants to go on to college. Some high school graduates seek job training or a technical school education that places them in the workforce and opens their futures up to very lucrative jobs in the trades. Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative recently announced a new scholarship program for high school seniors seeking to pursue trade school education.
Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative will present two $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors seeking any trade school program or certification. High school seniors who reside in a home receiving electric service from Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative are eligible to apply for the scholarship, which can be accessed at our Scholarships page. Scholarship applications must be received by March 15.
Its service territory represents the northwestern portion of Sussex County and a small portion of Orange County in New York. The company also has a 50-year utility service contract with the U.S. Army to provide utility service at Picatinny Arsenal.
Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative is the only rural electric cooperative in the state of New Jersey. SREC is a locally-owned and managed electric utility incorporated in New Jersey in April 1937. SREC's service territory represents over 11,000 members in the northwestern portion of Sussex County, including parts of Vernon, Wantage, and Sussex Borough.
