SECO Scholarship Application Deadline is March 25th

SECO Energy would like to remind area high school seniors that there is still time to apply for $36,000 in scholarships. Completed applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 25th.


Again this year, SECO Energy will award up to twelve $3,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors from throughout its service territory. Applications are available on our website, at area high school guidance offices and at any of SECO’s customer service centers in Marion, Lake, Citrus and Sumter counties.


CEO Jim Duncan stated, “As a parent, I know first-hand the expense of a college education and I am honored that SECO can help families alleviate that cost. At SECO and as a not-for-profit electric cooperative, we are committed to the communities we serve by contributing to the education of our future leaders.”

To qualify, graduating high school seniors must reside in a home served by SECO and be enrolled in an accredited college, university, or vocational/technical school by the end of 2016.


All applicants will be evaluated by an independent panel of educators from within the SECO service territory, and winners will be selected based on past and present school activities, community outreach, financial need and scholastic record.

    I understand that a deadline is a deadline; however, it doesn’t hurt to inquire anyhow. Are the applications for 2016 scholarships closed? We missed this opportunity and have been a SECO customer for 18 years. We would certainly apply immediately. Thank You for your response,

      Thank you for your response. We are sorry, the deadline for all scholarship applications was 3/25/16. The applications have been given to the judges to begin the judging process.
