The Georgia Power Scholarship Program assists family members of employees and retirees who plan to continue their education in a college, university, or vocational-technical school program. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
Applicants of the Georgia Power Scholarship Program award must be:
Family members of vice president level and above are NOT eligible to participate in this program.
Employees of Non Georgia Power SCS OpCos are NOT eligible to participate in this program.
Up to twenty (20) awards of $2,500 will be granted. Consideration will be given to represent the diversity of the applicant pool as well as employee location.
Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate and vocational-technical studies only.
Applicants will be notified in late March of selections made by Scholarship America. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Georgia Power. Awards will be paid in one installment in mid-July.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Georgia Power play a part in the selection.
