Minnesota Valley/Basin Electric Scholarship

Minnesota Valley/Basin Electric Scholarships

Minnesota Valley R.E.C. has again joined Basin Electric Power Cooperative in sponsoring a scholarship in 2022. A total of $2,000 in educational scholarships will be awarded to area students. 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 funding needs of 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 at least a senior in high school and enrolled in or planning on enrolling in a full time course of study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university or in a vocational/technical school program for the 2022-2023 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 an essay. A neutral group of Minnesota Valley members will review all applications and make a selection on a recipient(s). All post high school areas of study will be equally considered for the scholarship.
