Entergy Community Power Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: November 1, 2020 3:00 pm CT

Entergy Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ dependents that plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship program emphasizes community service. Scholarship recipients are primarily selected on the basis of volunteer community service, and secondarily on academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, national origin or financial need.

Applicants to the Entergy Community Power Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent children of full-time Entergy employees who have a minimum of one year of full-time employment with the company as of November 1, 2020. Dependent children are defined as your unmarried children up to the age of 19, if:
    • they live with you; or
    • you claim them as dependents for federal income tax purposes; or
    • you have full or joint legal custody of them under a divorce or custody decree
