Scholarships

Kenergy has established an annual scholarship program to assist in financing the higher education of students whose families are cooperative members.  In 2018, 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.

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.

Eligibility and criteria

The student must be a Kenergy member-owner or have his or her primary residence with a parent or legal guardian who receives electric service from Kenergy.

High school seniors or graduates may apply. They should attend or have plans to attend college during the upcoming fall or spring semester.  Applicants should be enrolled in a full-time program (no fewer than 12 credit hours) at a fully accredited college, university, technical college or trade school. Post-graduate college students also may apply. Non-traditional students are welcome as well.

Kenergy scholarships are one-time-only awards.  Previous winners may not apply.

Scholarship recipients must permit Kenergy to use their names, parents’ names, county of residence and photograph in the cooperative’s publications, including the member newsletter.

How to apply

Kenergy’s scholarships can be applied for online during the entire month of June.  During the first week of July, a random computerized drawing will be held for three (3) $1,000 scholarships and twenty-four (24) $500 scholarships.  The winners will be contacted and the results published in your monthly newsletter, Member Matters.  The online method will be more convenient, will require no travel for members, and it will provide more opportunity for members to apply.
