Kenergy has an established annual scholarship program that assists in financing the higher education of students whose family are cooperative members. In 2021, the cooperative will continue to award three $1,000 scholarships and twenty-four $500 scholarships. These scholarships can be used for tuition, fees, campus housing, textbooks, computers, school supplies and other costs directly related to the recipient’s education.
The scholarship application is located at kenergycorp.com/scholarships
During the first week of July, a random computerized drawing will be held and the winners will be contacted following the drawing. Winners will be notified by email and must contact Jeanette Weedman by return email by July 15, 2021 verifying they received notification and accept the scholarship according to guidelines or they will forfeit and another winner may be drawn as scholarship winner.
