As a cooperative, MiEnergy has a strong commitment to youth and community. Each year high school seniors are selected to receive scholarships to continue their education. The program recognizes students who demonstrate cooperative spirit through service to others. The MiEnergy scholarship is based on community service and academics.
2021 scholarship applications were due in our office (physical and email addresses are located on the application) by March 1.
Applications are posted here at the beginning of each year. In addition to the eligibility requirements below, to be considered for a scholarship, the student must submit (1) the completed scholarship application; (2) high school transcripts and (3) a cover letter. Not sure what your cover letter should include? Applications missing one of these pieces will not be considered.
The 2021 deadline was March 1.

You must be a high school senior, graduating this school year.
You must be continuing your education after high school at an accredited technical school, college or university.
You must be the son, daughter or legal dependent of a MiEnergy member with an active electric account (Children of MiEnergy Cooperative employees and directors are not eligible).

Scholarships are funded with unclaimed capital credit funds that would otherwise be forfeited to the state. Unclaimed capital credits are patronage dividends earned while purchasing electricity from the cooperative. Unclaimed funds are from past members who the cooperative cannot locate.
