Foundation for Rural Service Scholarship

ӲƵAPP, along with the Foundation for Rural Service is offering scholarships to local students. Established in 1994, FRS, in cooperation with the NTCA—The Rural Broadband Association, seeks to sustain and enhance the quality of life throughout Rural America by advancing an understanding of rural telecommunications issues.

As your local telecommunications service provider, it is our pleasure to offer this national scholarship program to the students in your school. Should a student from our service area be selected to receive one of the 30 scholarships ($2,000 each), we will contribute an additional $500 to the scholarship, bringing the total one-time scholarship award to $2,500.
