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 10 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.
