2024 General Scholarship Application

2024 Youth Rally Leadership Camp Application

The General Scholarships will be awarded to well rounded high school seniors who plan to pursue post-secondary education through a vocational or technical school, apprenticeship training, or a college degree program.
This scholarship continues to be merit based, with scores equally weighted among four categories: education, community involvement, future education/career goals, and need. 

The Idaho Youth Rally Scholarship provides an opportunity for sophomores and juniors attending high schools in CVEA’s service area to attend a week-long electric industry leadership camp in Caldwell, Idaho in July, where students practice leadership, communication skills, and teamwork while learning about electric utility practices and issues. While at the camp, students have an opportunity to earn educational scholarships that will be available to use for their education when they graduate.
