Scholarships

Each February Washington Electric provides high-school seniors who are the son or daughter of co-op members with scholarship applications. The Cooperative awards five scholarships each year, and first-place winners have the opportunity to compete for additional awards at the statewide level. Applications become available at the beginning of January and may be downloaded from this website or in the guidance office at all area high schools.

Children of Members Scholarship

Washington Electric awards four scholarship awards totaling $3,000 to graduating high-school seniors whose parents are members of the cooperative.
