Apply for the MN Valley/Basin Electric Scholarship

Minnesota Valley R.E.C. has again joined Basin Electric Power Cooperative in sponsoring a scholarship in 2018. A total of $2,000 in educational scholarships will be awarded to area students. All dependent children of Minnesota Valley Cooperative members meeting the qualifications are eligible to apply. The scholarship program is designed to recognize and encourage the achievements, abilities and school/community involvement of students in Minnesota Valley's service territory. The cooperatives have developed the scholarships to help meet the college or technical college funding needs of more students in rural areas.

To qualify for the scholarship, an applicant must be the dependent child of a Minnesota Valley member and a U.S. citizen. Applicants must be students enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time undergraduate or graduate course of study at an accredited, two-year or four-year college, university or technical college in the 2018-2019 school year. Students in any year of post high school education are eligible. Previous scholarship winners are not eligible. Recipients will be chosen based on a combination of overall grades, achievements, participation in school and community activities, a personal statement of career goals, applicant appraisal form and the essay. A neutral group of Minnesota Valley members will review all applicants and make a selection on a recipient(s). All post high school areas of study will be equally considered for the scholarship.

Scholarship applications for the 2018-2019 school year will be accepted until February 5, 2018, and the winners will be determined by March 1, 2018.
