VMDAEC Educational Foundation Scholarship

The Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives was founded in 1944 and provides training, communications, governmental relations and other services to the 16 electric cooperatives that serve the three-state Mid-Atlantic region.


The Educational Scholarship Foundation was established to provide a vehicle to fund future scholarships and allows for donations and memorial contributions to be tax deductible. It is structured according to Virginia law and was established in January 2000. The first scholarships were awarded in 2001. The Educational Scholarship Foundation is governed by the Foundation Board.

This scholarship is only available to individuals who are entering college as freshman and who's parents or legal guardians are members of our Association member electric cooperative utility companies.

The Foundation Board makes the determination each year of how many scholarships will be awarded dependent on the amount of funds available. The scholarships are awarded in early August each year. The funds can be used for tuition, books or fees.

The eligibility criteria requires that the student must apply for the funds and provide evidence of acceptance in a post high school educational institution or program thus they must be entering college or the training program as a freshman. They also must provide proof that their parents or legal guardian is a cooperative member/consumer (by sending a copy of their cooperative bill) from one of our member cooperatives in Virginia, Maryland or Delaware. The application information is verified and then reviewed by the Foundation Board.
