Trust Scholarship


Operation Round Up® is a voluntary program where members of Berkeley Electric Cooperative can combine a little of their change along with other members to fund worthy projects and help those in need in our service area. Operation Round Up is administered by Berkeley Electric Trust, a board of directors made up of community leaders from our service territory who serve on a voluntary basis.


Under the educational section of the Trust it is the Trust Board’s aim to provide ten (10) scholarships for children of members/guardians of Berkeley Electric Cooperative. Children of Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s Board and employees, including the Trust’s Board are NOT eligible for the scholarships.


Available Scholarships

One $1,000 scholarship will be presented to each of the six (6) high schools served by Berkeley Electric Cooperative. Four (4) $1,000 at large scholarships will be for member’s children who are attending neighboring high schools or home schooled seniors. Scholarships are subject to fund availability.


Program Guidelines & Priorities:

  • Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.5, a total family annual income under $75,000, and plan to attend an accredited college or technical/trade school.
  • Scholarship funds will be paid half ($500) in August 2018 and half ($500) January 2019 for the second semester of the student’s first year, directly to the college or full amount ($1000) to  technical/trade school and not to the student. It will be the student’s responsibility to submit to the Berkeley Electric Trust at that time the invoice for first and second semester tuition and fees, student ID number and college information.
  • Applicants must have the endorsement of the Guidance Counselor on their application attesting they are qualified for this scholarship program. Berkeley Electric Trust strongly suggests that each high school present this opportunity to the strongest applicants that match this program’s guidelines.
  • Late applications are not accepted.
