Scholarship Applications Due in January

In 2021, Sangre de Cristo Electric Association will award one four-year scholarship at $2,000 per year (which is available to a graduating high school senior only) and 13 $2,000 one-time scholarships. Industry associates may fund additional scholarships.

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 Sangre de Cristo Electric Association member or a dependent of a member. 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 may be awarded to the dependent of a Sangre de Cristo Electric employee or director.

Past recipients are eligible to apply again if they meet qualifying criteria.

The scholarship program is supported through unclaimed or donated capital credits, not through charging higher rates to our consumers.

Applications will only be accepted through our online portal. Scholarship applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, January 29, 2021. To fill out an application, visit our Scholarships page.
