Since 1995, Southwestern Electric Cooperative’s Power For Progress Scholarship Program has provided more than $287,000 in academic assistance to students pursuing a college degree or vocational school certificate. The tradition continues this year with Southwestern’s pledge to distribute $11,000 in scholarship money, including the Alan G. Libbra Memorial Scholarship, to 11 students in spring 2023 for use in the fall 2023 semester.
Scholarship recipients can apply the funding to tuition at any accredited university, college or technical school in the U.S.
Scholarship applications may be downloaded using the links below. You'll find separate applications for high school seniors graduating in 2023 and students who graduated from high school in previous years. The completed application and supplemental materials — including a cover letter, academic transcripts, attendance records and financial information — must be delivered to Southwestern Electric’s headquarters (525 U.S. Route 40 in Greenville), in a single envelope, by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 10, 2023.
