SANGRE DE CRISTO ELECTRIC OFFERS SCHOLARSHIPS
The deadline for applying is 5 pm on Friday, February 7, 2014!
Sangre de Cristo Electric Association offers a number of scholarship opportunities to dependents of its members in 2014.
One four-year scholarship at $1,500 per year and eleven $1,500 one-time scholarships will be funded by Sangre de Cristo Electric's unclaimed capital credits. The Sangre de Cristo Electric board has decreed that they will give preference to one of the $1,500 scholarships for any student attending lineman's school, noting the industry's need for new lineman in the near future. The cooperative's bylaws require unclaimed capital credits be held three years. The board of directors then decides how the unclaimed capital credits will be used. This year, they have once again chosen to use some of the money to fund scholarships. read more
