Ohio’s electric cooperatives offer youth scholarships

Since 1954 Ohio’s electric cooperatives have been helping graduating seniors continue their education through the Children of Members Scholarship Program. Each cooperative awards scholarships on a local level and selects two representatives to compete for additional scholarship money from the statewide association, the Ohio Rural Electric Cooperatives, Inc. More recently, the Touchstone Energy Achievement Scholarship program was added to recognize students who have overcome challenges in their pursuit of an education and may not qualify for more traditional scholarships. Additionally, the Louise Freeland Scholarship is available for the children of cooperative employees and trustees.
