Graduating high school seniors whose parents or guardians are members of Lake Country Power are invited to apply for the Les Beach Scholarship. The rural electric co-op expects to award college scholarships valued at $4,000 each to more than 35 high school students in 2023.

Scholarship recipients can qualify for up to $4,000 over four years to help pay for college or technical education. Scholarships are renewable for up to eight semesters, and students must maintain a grade point average of 2.5 or higher. Award winners must also keep full-time enrollment status at a technical school, community college or university.

Lake Country Power will offer one scholarship for every five successful applications submitted per school to offer more opportunities for students in the co-op’s local communities.

The online application process opens January 1, and high school seniors whose parents or legal guardians are LCP members have until 11:59 p.m., January 31, to apply. The electronic application is available at > My Cooperative > Community > Scholarships.

The Les Beach Memorial Scholarship is made possible through unclaimed capital credits. The scholarship honors a former co-op employee and recognizes student commitment and contribution to local communities.

Lake Country Power also offers $1,000 scholarships to five area community college foundations and three Minnesota lineworker schools to support students in trade schools and community/technical college programs. Applications for these scholarships are available directly through the colleges.
