Walter Harrison Scholarship

Cobb EMC is proud to help our members pursue the dream of a college education. Each year, we offer the Walter Harrison Scholarship through Georgia EMC. The $1,000 scholarship honors the late Walter Harrison, a rural electrification pioneer and electric cooperative leader, and is awarded to students who excel in the areas of GPA, SAT scores, academic standing and honors, and who demonstrate a financial need. Cobb EMC forwards three entries to the statewide selection committee, which includes EMC directors and managers from across Georgia. To be eligible, students must:

  • Be accepted or enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at any accredited two-year or four-year university, college or vocational-technical institute in Georgia
  • Complete the two-page Walter Harrison application
  • Write a two-page autobiographical sketch with references to future plans and goals
  • Live in a primary residence served by Cobb EMC

Applications for the 2022 Walter Harrison Scholarship must be submitted no later than February 7, 2022.
