Steele-Waseca Cooperative Electric (SWCE) is providing $500 scholarships to qualified high school seniors graduating in 2022.

One scholarship will be presented at each participating school. Scholarship eligibilty required by SWCE includes:

  1. Applicants must currently be high school seniors, who will be continuing their education on a full-time basis at a two- or four-year technical school or college.
  2. Applicants must be dependents of a SWCE member.

Each participating school is responsible for administering any other eligibility requirements, the selection of their school’s SWCE scholarship recipient, and the disbursement of the scholarship dollars from Steele-Waseca.

All eligible high school seniors should contact their guidance counselor or scholarship administrator for more information.

In 2021, SWCE awarded $500 scholarships to 16 high school senior graduates. The co-op’s scholarship program has awarded $189,750 in scholarships since the program was established in 1954. A portion of the funds to support these scholarships come from unclaimed capital credit equity.
