Scholarship Programs

Youth Scholarship Program

The Clay Electric youth scholarship program is funded by unclaimed money that would normally have to be turned over to the state. A 2003 bylaw amendment allows Clay Electric to keep this money in an educational trust to fund the scholarship program.

The annual scholarship program is limited to any public, private or home schooled high school senior whose home (primary residence) is served by Clay Electric and who will be graduating from high school at the end of the applicable school year.

The selections are based on community involvement, extra-curricular and academic achievements.

To provide an equal representation of scholarship winners throughout the Clay Electric service area, no more than one student at a given public school can receive a scholarship, and not every school will have a scholarship recipient. Also, no more than one student representing the private/home school category can receive a scholarship. Please contact your local district office if you have any questions.
