High School Seniors: Answer a video challenge, and you could earn $1,000 towards your post-secondary education.

If your family receives monthly service from Midwest Energy & Communications (MEC) at your primary residence, you are eligible to apply. Selection for the scholarship is based on the video submission along with academic performance, extra-curricular activities, community involvement and/or employment and honors and awards. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a four-point scale is required, and an official transcript must be submitted for final approval. 

  • Videos should be 2-3 minutes long. 
  • We award four scholarships each year and announce winners in the spring. 

Please note: Children of MEC employees and board members are not eligible to apply.

The application period for the 2021 scholarships has closed. Check back in January 2022 for next year's program.
