Community College Scholarships

At Piedmont Electric, we do more than keep the lights on — we make a difference in the lives of those we serve by helping build a better community.  We show our commitment to our communities through a wide range of youth programs and giving opportunities, including scholarships.

The Piedmont Electric Helping Hand Foundation awards six $1,500 scholarships to Piedmont Electric members who are attending Alamance Community College, Durham Technical Community College and Piedmont Community College.

Our community college scholarships are awarded to two students at each community college at the start of the fall semester. Applications for these scholarships are accepted through each community college’s general scholarship application form.
