Three Touchstone Energy cooperatives — Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA), Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, and Basin Electric Power Cooperative — are once again offering scholarships to local students.
Through DMEA's Unclaimed Capital Credits Fund, there are a number of $1,500 scholarships available to students including:
• One for a graduate from Cedaredge High School, Hotchkiss High School, Olathe High School and Paonia High School.
• Two for graduates of Delta High School.
• Three for graduates of Montrose High School.
• One per county for non-traditional schools such as home school, VISION, VISTA and charter schools.
• One directly to Colorado Mesa University's Montrose Campus and two to the Delta-Montrose Technical College to be awarded according to their respective criteria.
In addition, Tri-State and Basin Electric Power offer three additional scholarships for local students.
Students must be enrolled or planning to enroll full time in a college, university or vocational/technical school. All schools must be accredited, and courses of study can be two- or four-year programs.
Applicants must be citizens of the U.S. They must also reside in a home or facility that receives electricity from DMEA.
