Riverland Energy awards $32,000 in educational scholarships each year to students with guardians that are members of our cooperative. 

Scholarship Opportunities

Each year, high school seniors have the opportunity to receive scholarships to continue their education. Our scholarship program is available to any graduating high school senior who is the dependent of a cooperative member. The scholarship funds can be used at a four-year or two-year college or university, as well as a technical or trade school. 

Eligibility requirements:

  • One of the applicant's parents or legal guardians must be an active member and a bona fide resident of Riverland Energy Cooperative territory. An account number in their name must be provided.
  • The applicant or the applicant's parent or legal guardian must be present at Riverland Energy's Annual Meeting on Saturday, March 25, 2023 at the Arcadia High School. The meeting will start at 10:00 a.m. A free pancake breakfast will be served from 8 - 10 a.m. 

Non-traditional scholarship recipients will be chosen at the March Board of Directors meeting and do not have to be present. 

Payment will be made upon completion of the first quarter or semester of college, vocational, or technical school. 

We are proud of this opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of our youth.
