Each year, Colorado Valley Telephone Cooperative awards $2,000 scholarships to high school students whose households are Cooperative members. The Cooperative has awarded over $480,000 in scholarships through this program. The deadline for this year was April 1.
The Cooperative’s Rural Scholarship Fund comes from unclaimed accounts which the law allows to be applied to scholarships rather than forfeited to the State, and earning sources.
Colorado Valley Telephone is committed to its members and the communities it serves and is investing in the future through ongoing support for higher education.
Please call our office at 979-242-5911 if you need more information.
