College Scholarships

The application period is closed for the 2016-2017 school year. 

Applications are accepted from December through March, and winners are notified in late May.

Union Power Cooperative sponsors a College Scholarship Program for local high school seniors. We award six $1,000 college scholarships: three for a 4-year accredited North Carolina university and three for a North Carolina community college. Students will be chosen from our five-county service area, which is made up of Union, Stanly, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, and Rowan Counties.

All applicants must be a child of a Union Power Cooperative member or live in a home served by Union Power Cooperative and must be a high school senior in the current graduating class.

Criteria for awarding the scholarship to an individual is based on 40% need; 30% scholastic achievement; and 30% extracurricular activities in school, civic, and community functions.

Judging: An independent committee not affiliated with the Cooperative will conduct judging of applicants and selection of winners for Union Power Cooperative.
