Auxiliary Scholarship Program Background
Auxiliary Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions
Not quite yet! You will need to have completed at least one semester at an accredited university, college, vo-tech, or trade school as a full-time student. We have found that there are many scholarship opportunities for graduates immediately after high school, but these opportunities tend to taper off in subsequent years. Our goal is to help alleviate some of the financial burden incurred after your first year as a student.
Because requirements can vary from school to school, our scholarship committee defers to whatever your university, college, vo-tech, or trade school considers full-time. Please check your policies before applying.

- My impression of electric co-ops
- How I have given back to my local, sponsoring cooperative, statewide electric co-op organization (KEC), and/or the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)
- How what I’m doing right now, either in college or in my extracurricular activities, ties in with the 7 Cooperative Principles
