2016 empowered by scholarship winners!

Congratulations to the 28 distinguished local seniors who have been awarded United Telephone Educational Foundation scholarships this year! The selected recipients were chosen from candidates throughout central and eastern North Dakota, and will receive a total of $27,600 in scholarship funds to empower them to build a brighter future.

Since 1991, the United Telephone Educational Foundation has awarded 979 scholarships totaling over $669,000 to graduating seniors and other first-term college students, with the purpose of providing financial assistance to further their education. Consideration for these scholarships is not based strictly on scholastic achievement, but rather on a combination of leadership, financial need, and extracurricular activities.

Congratulations to this year’s distinguished winners:

Scholarship applications are accepted every March. If you or a high school senior you know is a United and Turtle Mountain Communications customer and interested in applying for a scholarship in the future, be sure to check back on our website next March for information on how to apply!
