In 1999, the state of Texas made it possible for non-profit electric cooperatives to put unclaimed member capital credit refunds to use for student scholarships. This year, Bowie-Cass Electric Cooperative, Inc. awarded $16,000 to area students from these funds.
Two levels of scholarships were awarded. Eight one thousand dollar scholarships were awarded and two four thousand dollar scholarships were awarded.
The Scholarship Committee had the difficult task of awarding only 10 scholarships from 70 applications that were recieved. Each applicant was scored on financial need, community involvement, and academics. To see this years list of scholarship winners click here.
