Kenergy has established an annual scholarship program to assist in financing the higher education of students whose families are cooperative members.  In 2024, the cooperative will award three $1,000 scholarships and twenty-four $500 scholarships.

Scholarships can be used for tuition, fees, campus housing, textbooks, computers, school supplies and other costs directly related to the recipient’s education.

Scholarships are paid to the recipient after the cooperative receives proof of full-time college enrollment in the fall and/or spring semester(s), along with receipts showing the student has paid for eligible expenses.  Claim Guide for Winners

Unclaimed scholarship money — not requested during the academic year of the award — will be forfeited.

Kenergy scholarships are awarded without regard to race, creed, religion, gender, disability or national origin.
