As part of our commitment to support the education of the members we serve, Medina EC awards scholarships to members who have a high school senior graduating or are adults pursuing higher education. The number and amount of scholarships vary annually.
Since scholarships were first awarded in 2000, Medina EC has awarded $582,500 for higher education to 398 members*. The program is funded by unclaimed capital credits. When capital credits remain unclaimed for three years, they are escheated back to the State of Texas. The state can then give a portion of that money back to the cooperative, which they have done in the past. These funds are used to fund the scholarship program, energy efficiency rebates and area economic development activities.
2019 Scholarship Program
Medina EC will be awarding 25 $1,000 scholarships to members and their children who are pursuing their education. Twenty scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors and five to adults.
For details on eligibility and rules, please read the Official Rules and Requirements.
The application deadline for the 2019 scholarship program closed on Friday, March 1, 2019, at 11:59 pm. Notifications will be sent to applicants in April.
If you have any questions, please send an email to Scholarship@MedinaEC.org.
