The Glenn English National Cooperative Leadership Foundation encourages educational advancement by awarding higher education scholarships to eligible students. To date, the Foundation is proud to have awarded $56,000 to NRECA’s Washington D.C. Youth Tour alumni since starting the program in 2014! Each year, they award one $10,000 scholarship and four additional $1,000 scholarships.
The interest and success of the Youth Tour Alumni scholarship has inspired the Glenn English Scholarship Committee to partner with IEEE-REPC to add an additional opportunity: The Next Generation Rural Engineering Scholarship.Each year, the committee will award two $2,000 scholarships to college students seeking a career in the rural electric engineering fields.
One major difference between the Next Generation Engineering Scholarship and the Glenn English National Cooperative Leadership Foundation Scholarship (detailed above) is that the Next Generation Engineering Scholarship applicants do not need to be former Youth Tour participants.Please read on for other additional application criteria and information.
