CVTC Awards $60,000 In Local Scholarships

Colorado Valley Telephone Cooperative, Inc. recently awarded scholarships to twelve graduating seniors from six area high schools. Each student will receive a $5,000 scholarship.

The Cooperative’s Rural Scholarship Fund is derived from money (capital credits, deposits, etc.) unclaimed by former members of the Cooperative that would otherwise be deposited in the State’s Escheat Fund. In addition, earnings on money that has been set aside by the Cooperative’s subsidiaries is used to fund the scholarships.

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 join us in congratulating the recipients of Colorado Valley’s 2021 scholarships:

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.
