how to apply

Contact your school's designated school counselor's office or scholarship committee for application deadlines and to obtain an application. The scholarship selection process is handled through each school's designated career guidance office or scholarship committee.

Roseau Electric Cooperative funds college scholarships with unclaimed capital credit dollars that, per Minnesota state law for unclaimed property, would otherwise be forfeited to the state. As a co-op, Roseau Electric returns excess revenue to members as capital credits. When capital credits are unclaimed, they are deposited into a separate fund for education and are used to offer scholarships for the children of co-op members.
