As a part of our committment to community, Darke REC's annual scholarship program helps local students achieve their educational goals.

Students are selected by a panel of three judges in interviews that are held in the spring at the cooperative office. Students are judged on their academic performance, school and community activities, personal interview, as well as their cooperative knowledge.

Darke REC scholarships are awarded to the first ($2,000), second ($1,000), third ($1,000), fourth ($1,000), and fifth ($1,000) place students. The first-place student qualifies to participate in the Ohio's Electric Cooperatives scholarship competition, where they can win an additional scholarship.
