SDCEA awarded a total of $35,000 this past spring to 17 students in Chaffee, Fremont, and Custer counties for the 2021 to 2022 school year. SDCEA members and their dependents are eligible for the academic awards. Scholarships are funded by returned or unclaimed capital credits, not through the rates consumers pay the electric cooperative.
