Salt River Electric Scholarships
Dating back to the 1960’s, Salt River Electric has held a scholarship contest for local students as part of our commitment of giving back to the communities we serve.
Now, Salt River Electric is excited to expand our scholarship program, with the hope that we can give back to more of our local students. This year, two high school students from each Salt River Electric district will receive a one-time $1,000 scholarship. One scholarship will go to a graduating senior planning to attend a traditional college or university, and one to a graduating senior planning to pursue a career through a trade or vocational program at an accredited school.
Also new this year is the Larry Hicks Memorial Scholarship. Named in honor of Salt River’s former President/CEO, this one-time $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to a current college student from our service area who is actively pursuing a degree in accounting or finance at an accredited college or university. A completed essay is required for this special scholarship.
To apply, an applicant must submit:
1. A completed scholarship information form
2. A copy of their most recent transcript (unofficial)
In addition to the above requirements, applicants for the Larry Hicks Memorial Scholarship must submit:
3. A typed essay on the provided topic
Completed applications can be turned in to any of our four Salt River Electric offices, to the attention of Diana Edwards. Scholarship recipients will be announced during the cooperative’s annual business meeting on June 5 th. Funds are not renewable and will be paid to the recipient’s school following their announcement.
Deadline is Friday, April 14, 2023.
