Get a $2000 College Scholarship

In 2018, Sangre de Cristo Electric Association, Inc. will award one four-year scholarship at $2,000 per year (which is available to a graduating high school senior only) and thirteen $2,000 one-time scholarships, all funded by unclaimed capital credits. Industry associates may fund additional scholarships.

One application form covers all of these scholarships. Get scholarship information and application or inquire about the scholarship at your high school counselor’s office.

The scholarships may be used by any full-time student at any accredited two or four-year college, university or vocational/technical school and at any level of the student’s education.

To be eligible for these scholarships, the applicant must be a DEPENDENT of a Sangre de Cristo Electric Association member (claims you on their tax return). Anyone with an active electric account in his or her name is considered a member. For scholarship purposes, the member must be a person, not a business or organization.

Scholarship applicants will be judged on grade point average, ACT/SAT tests, activities, goals, and need. One of the $2,000 scholarships will be awarded to the dependent of a Sangre de Cristo Electric employee or director. One of the $2,000 scholarships may be awarded to an applicant applying to an accredited linemen’s school. Another two of the $2,000 scholarships will be awarded by draw from the remaining applicants not otherwise selected.

Preference will be given to those students living full-time in SDCEA territory during their high school career. Past recipients of a SDCEA scholarship are eligible to apply again.

Scholarship applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, February 2, 2018.
