The Retired Employees Association of Orange County (REAOC) has implemented its scholarship program to recognize and support qualified students to obtain further skills and expertise at an accredited institution of higher learning. The scholarship is named in honor Keith L. Concannon, REAOC’s long serving representative on the Orange County Employees Retirement System Board and past REAOC President.

A candidate for a degree program means a student who is pursuing a degree at a college or university or is attending an accredited educational institution that is authorized to provide full credit toward a bachelor’s or higher degree, or is attending an accredited institution that is authorized to provide a training program to prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.
