MiEnergy Cooperative is pleased to offer community service scholarships to the children of cooperative members.
As a cooperative, MiEnergy has a strong commitment to youth and community. Each year high school seniors are selected to receive scholarships to continue their education. The program recognizes students who demonstrate cooperative spirit through service to others. The MiEnergy scholarship is based on community service and academics.
Applications are posted here at the beginning of each year (the 2020 application can be found above) and the deadline to apply is March 2, 2020.
You must be a high school senior, graduating this school year.
You must be continuing your education after high school at an accredited technical school, college or university.
You must be the son, daughter or legal dependent of a MiEnergy member with an active electric account (Children of MiEnergy Cooperative employees and directors are not eligible).
You must demonstrate community service, according to scholarship instructions.
Must have at least a “B” grade point average.
Scholarships are funded with unclaimed capital credit funds that would otherwise be forfeited to the state. Unclaimed capital credits are patronage dividends earned while purchasing electricity from the cooperative. Unclaimed funds are from past members who the cooperative cannot locate.
MiEnergy Cooperative will utilize our Member Advisory Committee in the selection process of the scholarship awards.
