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. The amount of scholarship money available varies from year to year; this year, Bowie-Cass Electric Cooperative will award $8,000 to deserving recipients. The 2023 Bowie-Cass Scholarship Guidelines are available here. The Scholarship Applications are available here. The deadline to return the completed Scholarship Application is Friday, March 17, 2023.
Completed applications can be submitted to Bowie-Cass Electric Co-Op, Attn: Marketing, PO Box 47, Douglassville, TX 75560, or by email to email@example.com.
