Win a $500.00 scholarship! MiEnergy Cooperative is pleased to offer community service scholarships to the children of cooperative members.
As a cooperative, MiEnergy has a strong commitment to youth and community. Each year high school seniors are selected to receive scholarships to continue their education. The program recognizes students who demonstrate cooperative spirit through service to others. The MiEnergy scholarship is based on community service and academics.

Scholarship funding: Does not affect your electric rates
Scholarships are funded with unclaimed Capital Credit funds that would otherwise be forfeited to the state. Unclaimed Capital Credits are patronage dividends earned while purchasing electricity from the cooperative. Unclaimed funds are from past members who the cooperative cannot locate.
MiEnergy Cooperative will utilize our Member Advisory Committee in the selections process of the scholarship awards.
