I’m delighted to inform you that Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative’s (SMECO) Scholarship Application process is now online. Please discard any paper application you may still have.
Students can go to our website and complete and submit the application there. We’ve made the process easier by eliminating some previously required items such as the essay but we do require students to submit an official transcript, either by mail or in person.
Note that the top 7 students will need to attend an in-person interview during the week of April 13.
The application and guidelines can be found on SMECO’s website here: https://www.smeco.coop/community/schools/scholarships.
Check back often to keep informed and up to date!
