Operation Round Up turns consumer-members’ cents into dollars as 26 students were recently awarded scholarships by the Diverse Power Foundation.

Headed by a nine-member volunteer board, the Diverse Power Foundation distributes funds raised through Operation Round Up, Diverse Power’s philanthropic program, in which consumer-members round up their power bills to the next dollar with the extra change earmarked for education.

Diverse Power Foundation has awarded a total of $1,175,500 in student scholarships, including $91,000 this spring. Selection of scholarship recipients is based on grades, SAT scores, extracurricular activities, personal character, civic responsibility and financial need.

This year’s recipients each received a $3,500 scholarship to the technical institute, junior or four-year college of their choice.

To date, the Diverse Power Foundation has gifted just under $2.4 million in educational and community initiatives, including 418 scholarships totaling over $1.17 million and 296 grants totaling more than $1.29 million.
