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.
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.
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.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
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. Awards are granted without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in mid-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.
