North West REC and Basin Electric Power Cooperative will be sponsoring several scholarships to dependents of members of North West REC in 2021.
There will be two $1,000 scholarship winners from each of the four districts of North West REC (Ida, O’Brien, Plymouth, and Sioux). The selection process for the $1,000 scholarship winners will be based on a combination of SAT/ACT scores, overall grade-point average, work experience, participation in school and community activities, a personal statement of career goals, and a written reference or appraisal by a third party.
In addition, there will be several $500 and $250 scholarships awarded to scholarship applicants. Several $500 scholarship winners will be randomly drawn in each of the four districts with all remaining scholarship applicants receiving a $250 scholarship.
Scholarship applicants will be asked to participate in a virtual conference call, likely via ZOOM, this spring where North West REC staff will share the vision, mission, and values of our cooperative. During this call, the $1,000 winners will be announced and the random drawing for the $500 scholarships will take place. Details of this virtual conference call will be communicated at a later date.
