Jackson Electric Membership Corporation (EMC) is accepting applications for three scholarship programs. Applicants may be full or part-time students. Winners will be chosen by a scholarship committee, which will review each application to select the most qualified candidates, based on academic ability, extra-curricular activities, autobiographical sketch and recommendations.
Jackson EMC offers two types of awards through the A.T. Sharpton (ATS) Scholarship program, named in honor of a late chairman of the Jackson EMC Board of Directors. $1,000 scholarships will be awarded this year, three from each of the two ATS categories.
The A.T. Sharpton Restricted Scholarship Award is available exclusively to students attending or planning to attend Gainesville State College. Judges will consider academic ability, extra-curricular activities, autobiographical sketch and recommendations, as well as financial need.
