Crow Wing Power Scholarships
If you're a high school senior and a member of Crow Wing Power, we offer several ways to apply for a college scholarship. Check with your high school counselor regarding the criteria.
On-line Scholarship Contest
This year's on-line contest begins October 2016 and ends March 31, 2017. Three $1,000 scholarships will be drawn at random in April of 2017 out of the online applications we receive.
Become A Lineworker
We offer lineworker scholarships at area lineworker technical colleges as well.
Scholarship funding is made available through unclaimed capital credits and the Crow Wing Power Community Trust through Operation Round-up and is given to area educational facilities as the fund allows.
In 2016, $72,000 in scholarships were awarded as follows:
- 38 seniors from 10 area high schools received $1,500 each;
- 3 seniors from area high schools received $1,000 each (on-line drawing); and
- 12 students attending lineworker school received $1,000 each.
