AcenTek established its college scholarship fund in 2000 for the purpose of awarding $1,000 scholarships to 20 high school seniors in our serving areas who continue their education. Eligible participants are graduating seniors who have been accepted to a college or university and have AcenTek phone or broadband service in Minnesota, Iowa or Michigan. Over the past 21 years AcenTek has awarded $405,000 to deserving young adults.
