Austin, Minnesota – Cooperative Response Center, Inc. (CRC) is pleased to announce its scholarship program for the 2013-2014 school year, awarding up to $6,000 to students attending high schools in the communities in which it works.

CRC will award up to six $1,000 scholarships to seniors attending high schools, both public and private, in the following communities: Austin, Minn., Dunlap, Tenn., and Abilene, Texas. High school senior sons and daughters of regular full- and part-time CRC employees are also eligible.
