About Our Annual Scholarship
Colorado Valley Telephone Cooperative is committed to its members and the communities it serves and is investing in the future through ongoing support for higher education. We are pleased to be able to offer $5,000 scholarships to approximately 10 area students who reside in a household that receives telephone service from the Cooperative.
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.
