Scholarship Highway

Proudly supporting bright futures

Each year, Brunswick Electric awards two scholarships of $5,000 each to high school seniors from Brunswick and Columbus County.

Scholarship awards are based on a combination of academic achievement, participation in community or school-related activities, SAT scores, letters of reference, and submission of a 1,500-word essay.

Applications are available online and in all high school guidance offices mid-December through mid-March.

All completed applications must be submitted through the student’s guidance counselor by the application deadline. Failure to apply on time could result in disqualification of the application.
