COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP

applications available in 2022

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Hendricks Power Cooperative has been committed to the communities we serve for over 80 years. This commitment inspired our scholarship program, which assists local students in fulfilling their dreams for higher education. This scholarship program was developed to encourage the sons and daughters of our members to further their education and become more aware of careers in the rural electric industry. Hendricks Power Cooperative is continuing its scholarship program in 2022. The co-op will award six scholarships, each worth $1,500, toward college tuition or a school of higher education for graduating seniors.

Applications are available below. Submissions require a completed application form, essay submission, transcript of grades, and personal letter of reference. Required materials must be submitted to the cooperative (or postmarked) by Friday, March 4th, 2022. Materials can be electronically submitted below, mailed to Hendricks Power Cooperative, Attn: Commitment to Community Scholarship PO Box 309, Danville IN 46122, or dropped off at our office, located at 86 N CR 500 E, Avon.
