Platte River Power Authority offering scholarship to local students

Platte River Power Authority announced Jan. 14 that its $3,000 Roy J. Rohla Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a local student in 2016 through the RMEL Foundation.

Platte River Power Authority donated $3,000 to the RMEL Foundation and asked that a scholarship be given to a high school senior or college student whose permanent residence is located in Estes Park, Fort Collins, Longmont or Loveland.

Through the scholarship, local students will also gain exposure to a diverse and exciting electric energy career when they are added to the National Electric Energy Career Jump Start Directory. Even if an applicant doesn’t receive a scholarship, their information (with their permission) will be shared with hundreds of RMEL member companies from the across the country. These electric utilities of all types and services and supplier companies are actively seeking candidates for paid internships and employment opportunities.
