Mayor Walters is pleased to announce that application information for the 2021 American Municipal Power (AMP) Scholarship Program is now available. AMP has established this scholarship program to encourage high school students in member communities to further their education and to create an awareness of careers in the municipal electric utility field.
The Cuyahoga Falls Electric System may nominate one candidate for the Lyle B. Wright Scholarship, and one candidate for the Richard H. Gorsuch Scholarship. High school seniors who will graduate in the spring, have met all the basic requirements for college or technical school, and have an unweighted grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale, are encouraged to apply for nomination. The amount of these one-time scholarship awards is $3,000.
Students must complete the local nominee application form and submit it along with a letter of recommendation and an official high school transcript showing the student’s cumulative grade point average for six semesters. Application materials must be submitted by 5 P.M. Wednesday, December 16th, 2020 to the Cuyahoga Falls Electric System, 2550 Bailey Road.
Nomination application packets may be picked up at the Cuyahoga Falls Electric System. Application packets are also available online. Students are urged to work closely with their high school guidance counselors to ensure that application materials are complete and submitted on time.
While scholastic record is important in the selection process, AMP Scholarship recipients will be selected also based on personal achievements and knowledge of public power. For more information, please contact the Cuyahoga Falls Electric System at 330-971-8060.
