Every high school senior considering a higher education path could use a little extra cash to help with expenses, and Team Midwest is again offering support with our annual scholarship program.

High school seniors whose families receive monthly service from Midwest Energy Cooperative, Midwest Propane and/or Midwest Connections are invited to apply for one of the four $1000 college scholarships. Scholarship applications must be submitted by March 18, and awards will be made in April.

Selection for the scholarship is based on 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. Full details can be found with the online application at TeamMidwest.com.

Midwest Energy Cooperative is a member-owned electric utility providing electric distribution and an assortment of energy- and telecommunications-related programs and services to more than 35,000 customers in 11 counties in southern Michigan and northern Indiana and Ohio.
