Demonstrating its commitment to the communities it serves, United Cooperative Services this summer will provide $43,000 in Energy Scholarship Awards to 14 students who are members of the cooperative. United’s scholarship award program was created to encourage and assist in the educational pursuits of the co-op’s members and their families. United will award 10 scholarships valued at $2,000 each. Three additional scholarships will be awarded: Third Place will receive a $4,000 scholarship, Second Place will receive a $5,000 scholarship and First Place will receive a $10,000 scholarship award.
The scholarship application process runs May 1 through June 1, 2015. Applications will not be accepted after June 1. Applications must be filled out online at United’s Web site: HERE. Eligible applicants include graduating high school seniors and returning college students who meet a number of criteria, which includes being an active member of United or a dependent of parents or legal guardians who are active United members at their principle residence.
There will be two rounds of judging. In the first component of award judging, the placement of the top 15 award recipients out of all applicants will be determined by an independent panel of judges who will base the awards on financial need and leadership, community service and school activities. Some components of this part of the award judging must be completed by filling out the online application at www.united-cs.com. For the second part of award judging, the top 15 scholarship award recipients out of all applicants must participate in an interview contest on July 30 in front of an independent panel of judges.
