Will you be graduating from high school in the spring of 2023? Do you receive your electricity from Opelika Power Services? If your answer to these questions is “yes,” you could be eligible to receive a scholarship from Opelika Power Services and the Alabama Municipal Electric Authority (AMEA).
OPS and AMEA will make available four scholarships to local high school students in 2023. Since 1992, AMEA has awarded over $3 million in scholarship monies to graduating high school seniors who receive their electric service from AMEA Members.
“I hope all qualifying students apply! This opportunity could help ease some financial pressure of students and parents, and be an added incentive for students to continue their hard work in furthering their education,” said Mayor Gary Fuller.
To be eligible for an AMEA scholarship, a student’s parent and/or legal guardian must receive electric service from Opelika Power Services, and the student must attend a four-year college/university, community college and/or vocational/trade school within the state of Alabama.
Applications are currently available from school counselors at Opelika High School, Trinity School and Lee Scott Academy, or you can go online to the OPS web site at https://www.opelika-al.gov/954/AMEA-Partnership. Application deadline is Monday, Feb. 13, 2023.
For more information on the program, contact your school counselor or Pamela Poole, AMEA Scholarship Coordinator, (334) 387-3504, (800) 239-2632, Ext. 1110, or [email protected].
