Your cooperative takes great pride in helping develop rural leaders in our region. Therefore, we offer scholarships to recognize academic and community achievements made by young people in the communities we serve.
These scholarships are considered an investment in the economic future of rural areas. One will be sponsored by Midland Power Cooperative, and the other by a wholesale power supplier, Basin Electric Power Cooperative. Applicants only need to apply once to be considered to win either of these scholarships, as well as a third $1,000 scholarship, to be awarded to a dependent of a Midland Power member, or a dependent of a member at a neighboring electric cooperative.
Recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, and a statement of education and career goals.
The scholarships must be used for educational costs, and the student must attend college in the fall of the school year for which the scholarship is awarded. Checks will be made payable to the school and distributed directly to the school from the electric cooperatives.
