For more than seven decades, CoServ has taken an active role in the North Texas communities we serve. In particular, we support and encourage the academic and community endeavors of our local students. The scholarship program is one way we recognize these future leaders. The application window to apply for the 2017 CoServ scholarships has closed. Please check back in the fall for information about the 2018 scholarships.
In 2017, the program will award $35,000 in scholarships - $5,000 apiece for seven eligible students across North Texas.
The program's purpose is to encourage and support eligible graduating high school seniors with an established CoServ connection as they pursue their education at an institute of higher learning in the state of Texas.
W. Tip Hall Jr., a longtime educator, preacher and legislator who served on the CoServ Electric Board of Directors for 10 years, was instrumental in developing the scholarship program.
