Newark, Ohio: The Energy Cooperative, The Energy Cooperative’s Operation Round Up Foundation and Touchstone Energy offer three scholarship programs to carry on an education and training program that encourages our youth to further their education. Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors whose parent(s) or legal guardian are members of the cooperative receiving electric or natural gas/propane services.*

Each January, information is mailed to guidance counselors at the high schools in the cooperative’s service territory. Please check with your school guidance counselor for all the details. The scholarships are awarded at The Energy Cooperative’s Annual Meeting held in May. Deadlines are fast approaching.

In addition, The Energy Cooperative commits to sponsoring one or two high school sophomores or juniors, whose parent(s) or legal guardian are members of the cooperative receiving electric or natural gas/propane services, to participate in the Youth Tour. The Youth Tour is an all-expenses paid, week-long trip by bus to Washington, DC which will take place June 12 through 18, 2015. Application deadline is March 27, 2015.

*Members of the immediate families and persons residing in the households of Directors, Managers, and Distribution cooperative employees and OREC or affiliated organization employees are not eligible to participate.
