(St. Marys, OH)- Midwest Electric is committed to our communities. And one of the ways we show that commitment is by offering scholarships.
Midwest Electric is offering scholarships to West Central Ohio high school seniors. To be eligible for the 2018 scholarship programs, applicants must be graduating seniors who have all the basic credits for college, vocational or technical school entrance. Applicants must be a child or legal ward of a Midwest Electric member.
Midwest Electric has two scholarship programs – a general scholarship for students with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5; and the Touchstone Energy Achievement Scholarship for students with at least a 2.75 GPA who have overcome adversity or personal challenges in pursuit of their goals.
For the general scholarship, six student finalists will compete for $9,000 in scholarships from Midwest Electric. Three boys and three girls will vie for two $2,000 scholarships, two $1,500 and two $1,000 awards.
The top boy and girl finalists will represent Midwest Electric in the Ohio Electric Cooperatives (OEC) competition in Columbus where they will compete against students representing other Ohio electric cooperatives. OEC awards 18 scholarships totaling $35,800.
For the Touchstone Energy Achievement Scholarship, Midwest Electric will award one $2,000 winner, and OEC will give six $2,100 awards.
Other provisions apply. Contact your high school guidance counselor or Midwest Electric for more information or an application.
