Mediacom Communications is offering $60,000 in scholarship support for high school students who are seniors and plan to obtain further education. The scholarship program is in its 13th consecutive year and will award $1,000 World Class Scholarships to 60 high school seniors.
Recipients will be selected from applicants living in areas where Mediacom delivers broadband and cable services. The company’s service areas are primarily non-metro communities and counties in Midwestern states and southeastern states, including more than 40 communities and two dozen counties in western and central Kentucky (including Stewart County, Tenn.).
Mediacom scholarship recipients may use the financial awards to support educational expenses they will incur in the fall of 2014 while pursing higher education or vocational training from any accredited post-secondary institution. Applications for Mediacom’s World Class Scholarships were sent to offices in all high schools in Mediacom-served communities. Applications can also be found online at www.mediacomworldclass.com or at local Mediacom customer service offices. Completed applications are due on or before Feb. 15, 2014.
“As a company, Mediacom makes it a priority to give back to communities in which we do business, and one of the best ways is to invest in promising students who are our future leaders,” said Joe DiJulio, Mediacom’s area operations director for western Kentucky. Applicants do not have to be Mediacom customers but must live in areas where Mediacom provides broadband, video, phone and other digital communication services.
