As part of Valley TeleCom group's commitment to giving back through scholarships, we're proud to play a part in the educational future of our youth.
Valley Telephone Cooperative Foundation and Copper Valley Telephone Scholarship Programs.
The Valley Telephone Cooperative Foundation is an independent foundation that provides scholarships to members, patrons, and family members of patrons of the Valley Telephone Cooperative, Inc. The Foundation grants one-year scholarships, which are paid one semester at a time. There is a four-year maximum for any one student to receive a Valley TeleCom Group scholarship.
2017 recipients will be announced at our 53rd Annual Meeting, to be held at Pearce Elementary School in Pearce, Arizona on Saturday, May 6th 2017.
All applications and other pertinent paperwork can be accessed by clicking on the links below.
The deadline for all scholarship materials is March 10, 2017.
Each year the Valley Telephone Cooperative Foundation awards scholarships from capital credits that Valley Telephone Cooperative members have not claimed or have donated to the Foundation. Copper Valley Telephone reserves money during the budget process each year to award scholarships. The scholarship funds are completely separate, and scholarships are awarded based upon the serving area the qualifying customer has service in, along with the selection criteria shown below. To simplify the process, there is one application for both scholarship funds. The Scholarship Administrator will determine which scholarship you are applying for based upon the serving area of the qualifying customer.
