In 2013, Medina Electric Cooperative awarded 30 graduating seniors and adults pursuing a higher-education $1,000 each in scholarship money. The money that funds the co-op’s scholarship program comes from unclaimed capital credits that are returned by the State of Texas each year.

History of the Scholarship Program
Medina EC's scholarship program was implemented with help from Texas State Law, House Bill (HB) 3202. Enacted in 1997, this HB allows nonprofit electric cooperatives to use unclaimed capital credit money to offer scholarships.
Graduating seniors and adults who are pursuing higher-education are encouraged to apply for a Medina EC scholarship.
