ETC offers two types of scholarships

Applications for the 2014 Enhanced Telecommunications Corp. and national Foundation for Rural Service scholarships are now available at high school guidance offices and online at www.etczone.com. They may also be picked up at any ETC office.

The FRS Scholarship is new this year and different than the past FRED Scholarship, points out Brandy Wessel, ETC public relations and media planner.

The $500 ETC scholarships are awarded annually to one graduating senior or home-schooled student from each of these area high schools: Batesville, Oldenburg Academy, East Central, Franklin County, Greensburg, Jac-Cen-Del, Milan, Union County and North Decatur. ETC scholarship applications must be submitted to ETC (attention marketing manager Anita Fledderman) by April 4, 2014.

New this year, ETC will sponsor local high school seniors for the FRS scholarship, awarded to rural students who have been accepted by accredited two- or four-year colleges, universities or vocational technical schools and have an interest in returning to a rural community following graduation. FRS Scholarships range from $1,500 to $5,000 and are awarded to many students across America annually, based on geographical regions and essays. FRS applications are due to FRS by March 3, 2014, and require a letter of recommendation and the sponsorship signature of Fledderman.
