In 1999 Columbia REA established an Academic Scholarship Program for members or dependents of members with an active electricity account served by Columbia REA.
Each year, three continuing education scholarships are awarded to eligible applicants. The Clark A. Brewington Memorial Scholarship, in the amount of $1,500, is awarded to the highest scoring applicant. The remaining two academic scholarships are in the amount of $1,000 each.
Once awarded, these scholarships are renewable for up to three additional consecutive years provided the recipient remains a student in good standing with at least a 2.75 grade point average at an accredited institute for higher learning.
