Northern Plains Electric announces scholarship


November 18, 2019

Northern Plains Electric Cooperative and Basin Electric Power Cooperatives are offering a $1,000 scholarship to a dependent of a member of Northern Plains Electric for the 2020-2021 school year.

Basin Electric is a consumer-owned and controlled regional cooperative responsible for supplying wholesale electric power to nine Midwestern states. Each of the 141 rural electric cooperatives that make up Basin Electric receives $1,000 from Basin Electric to award a scholarship to a qualifying dependent of a member.

The scholarship program, which is in its 29thyear, recognizes and encourages the academic achievements of students in the region. It also serves as an investment in the economic future of rural areas.

Applicants for the scholarship must be a high school senior or college freshman enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited, two-year or four-year college, university or vocational/technical school in the fall of 2020.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, a statement of education and career goals, an outside appraisal and a written essay describing how a cooperative can be economic engines for their local communities.

Scholarship applications must be postmarked by Jan 31, 2020.
