Beartooth Electric Cooperative Scholarship Opportunities Open for Application


Beartooth Electric Cooperative (BEC) is excited to offer scholarship opportunities to students within its service territory from both BEC and the Montana Electric Cooperatives’ Association (MECA). Any high school or home-schooled senior graduating in 2017, whose parents or guardians are members of BEC and whose primary residence is served by the Cooperative, is eligible to apply for the 2017 scholarships. An applicant must be entering his or her first semester at a college or technical/trade school in the fall of 2018. 


BEC awards a $1,000 scholarship to one senior from each of the eleven service area high schools. Scholarship recipients are selected based on a combination of weighted criteria, including financial need, a personal statement, academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community service. The Beartooth Electric $1,000 Scholarship application deadline is January 26, 2018. Applications must be submitted to the High School Guidance Counselor at each school.


The Montana Electric Cooperative Association’s (MECA) $500 Memorial Scholarship opportunity is also open for application. The Beartooth Electric membership criteria applies for eligibility, and a single candidate to represent BEC in final judging at MECA will be selected by the Beartooth Board of Trustees. Applications must be received at the BEC office by January 26, 2018.
