The Cooperative awards 4 - $500 random scholarships each year to Seniors served by the cooperative attending our Annual meeting held in February.
3 - $1,000 scholarships are awarded to outstanding students served by the cooperative by application each year. Eligibility varies but in general overall academic achievement (such as GPA and ACT/SAT scores), extracurricular activities and community involvement rank high in the evaluation process. A brief written essay is required, and the applicant's primary residence must be in Norris Electric's service territory.
