Eligible students must plan to attend an Indiana accredited post-secondary school, and have a parent, legal guardian, or primary relative who is a member of Orange County REMC participating in Operation Round Up® at the time of the scholarship application.

Operation Round Up® is a voluntary program that allows REMC members to "round up" their electric bills the next dollar. This added amount is collected in a trust fund, overseen by an independent board of trustees and disbursed through grants.

To date more than $390,109 has been awarded in grants and scholarships through the program.

Local residents can apply for the grants by filling out the appropriate paperwork. For more information, visit

Applications for the next grant cycle are due by June 24, 2016.
