Leadership Award/MECA Memorial Scholarship
At Vigilante Electric we understand the importance and costs of a higher education. This year, we are again pairing our Leadership Award with the Montana Electric Cooperative Association’s (MECA) Memorial Scholarship, giving deserving students the opportunity to win two $500 scholarships while filling out one application.
The VEC Leadership Award/ MECA Memorial Scholarship are given to students that not only excel in the classroom, but in their communities as well. Judging is based on academic strength, activities in school and community, awards and honors, employment, volunteerism, community service and a personal statement.
All educational opportunities through Vigilante Electric are funded by unclaimed capital credits which we are required to retain for five years. At the end of this period we can either use the funds for educational purposes or turn them over to the State of Montana.
The deadline for this scholarship opportunity is January 18, 2019. The top applications will receive our Leadership Award and the best application will be forwarded to MECA for consideration for their Memorial Scholarship. Past recipients are not eligible.
