College Scholarships

Through our Helping Hand Foundation, we are proud to award scholarships to high school seniors and community college students pursuing higher education. There are seven $2,000 scholarships available to high school seniors planning to attend a North Carolina university, college, community college or two-year school after graduation.

Applicants must have a parent, grandparent or guardian who is a Piedmont Electric member to be eligible and applications are due by March 31.

Visit to apply.

We also offer six $1,500 scholarships to members who are actively attending Alamance Community College, Durham Technical Community College or Piedmont Community College. These scholarships are awarded to two students at each institution at the start of the fall semester.

You can apply through your community college’s scholarship application.

Please contact us at 800.222.3107 if you have any questions.

Basketball Camps

One middle school boy and girl from our service area have the opportunity to hit the courts with our summer basketball camp scholarships. The winners of these scholarships will have the opportunity to work closely with college basketball coaches and camp staff members to develop skills that will help them reach their potential both on and off the court. During the program, campers get to stay in dorms overnight in between the sessions.

The Carolina Basketball School applications are available to rising sixth-grade boys, while the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp applications are available to rising sixth through eighth grade girls.

Applicants must have a parent, grandparent or guardian who is a Piedmont Electric member to be eligible. The deadline to apply is March 31 and winners will be notified by the end of April.
