Electrical Line Worker Scholarship
PPCS is proud to offer an Electrical Line Worker Scholarship to assist an individual interested in a career in the electric power industry as a line worker. PPCS will award a $1,000 scholarship to an individual pursuing a post-secondary education in an electrical line worker (electrical power distribution) program. Applicant must be a graduating senior from a high school within PPCS’ service area. PPCS members and nonmembers are eligible. Applicant must complete an application and submit an essay titled “Why I want to be an Electrical Line Worker”. The deadline is March 15, 2017.
An electrical line worker will install, maintain and repair power lines and equipment that may include climbing poles or operating aerial lift devices to work on overhead lines, or digging trenches to install underground electric cable. If you enjoy working outdoors and problem solving with both your head and your hands, this may be the career for you.
