Continuing Education Scholarships
The 2019 Continuing Education Scholarship Applications deadline is Friday, March 22.
Through 2018, forfeited capital credits have resulted in more than $275,000 in scholarships to local high school students since 1981.
St. Croix Electric Cooperative’s Continuing Education Scholarship Program was established in 1981 by the members and directors of St. Croix Electric.This is a scholarship opportunity for public or private high school or home-schooled seniors in the Class of 2019 who are dependents of current St. Croix Electric Cooperative members and planning to pursue post-secondary education in Fall 2019. Dependents of SCEC employees or directors are not eligible.
Students planning to pursue a 4-year degree in an agriculture-related field may also apply for the Wayne Willink Cooperative Leadership Scholarship. Eligible students may apply for and/or receive BOTH an SCEC 4-year Continuing Education Scholarship AND the Wayne Willink Continuing Education Scholarship. (Fill out and submit BOTH applications - only one copy of the Principal/Guidance Counselor Form and transcript need be submitted).
An eligible SCEC Continuing Education Scholarship application packet will include:
All materials must be postmarked and/or received at the Cooperative office by Friday, March 22, 2019 (materials may be mailed or sent electronically); applications, forms and transcripts received after the deadline will not be considered.
