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 $517,500 for higher education to 333 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.
2018 Scholarship Program
Medina EC is once again awarding 40 $1,000 scholarsips to members and their children who are pursuing their education. Thirty-two scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors and eight to adults.
The application deadline was March 3, 2018.
How Scholarships are Awarded
All eligible applications are entered into a drawing. The names of the winners will be drawn at the April board meeting. Applicants will be notified of the results by the end of April.
