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. will be awarding $16,000.00 in scholarships to area students from these funds.
Two scholarships worth $4,000 each will be awarded and eight scholarships worth $1,000 each will be awarded.
This program is available to active members and their dependents that are currently receiving electrical service from Bowie-Cass Electric Cooperative, reside within the Bowie-Cass service territory and are citizens of the United States of America.
Application packets are available here or from area High School counselors.
