Douglas Electric is accepting applications for 2017 Scholarship.
Douglas Electric in conjunction with Basin Electric Power Cooperative is offering a $1,000 college scholarship to a student whose parents are members of Douglas Electric.
The scholarship program recognizes and encourages the academic achievements of students in its region. It also serves as an investment in the economic future of rural areas.

Applicants also must be students enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time graduate or undergraduate course of study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational/technical school.
The scholarship recipients are chosen based on a combination of SAT/ACT scores, overall grade point average, work experience, participation in school and community activities, a personal statement of career goals, applicant appraisal by a third party and an essay.
