St. Clairsville, OH (September 6, 2013) - Belmont College is pleased to announce that second-year student John Toth has received the AEP Scholarship.

Toth, a resident of Wheeling, WV, is majoring in Belmont College’s Industrial Electronics program and hopes to pursue a career in the energy industry after graduation. In his first year at Belmont College he received $1,000 from the AEP scholarship and now in his second year he will receive $2,000.

To date, Belmont College has awarded more than $17,000 in scholarship monies to eligible first- and second-year students in the Industrial Electronics and Power Plant training programs through a workforce development program sponsored by AEP Ohio, a unit of American Electric Power.

R.J. Konkoleski, Director of Development and External Affairs Scholarships at Belmont College said, “Scholarship such as this one funded by AEP, help keep out of pocket tuition expenses manageable for our students and offer great opportunities to those who receive them, allowing students to achieve their educational and career goals at a reduced cost.”

To qualify for the AEP scholarship award applicants must:

  • Have a cumulative high school grade point average of at least 2.75
  • Enroll in either the Industrial Electronics or Power Plant Technology programs
  • Be an AEP Ohio customer or son or daughter of such customer with a primary residence served by AEP Ohio at the time of scholarship application and award.
