Annual Meeting Scholarship Applications Now Available!

For the second year in a row, Wayne-White Counties Electric Cooperative will award 10 $500 scholarships at our Annual Meeting at Wayne City High School on June 9, 2023.

Each student who enters must be the son or daughter of an active Cooperative member. While applications from a son or daughter of a Wayne-White employee or board member are not eligible, any of their grandchildren are eligible to apply.

Winners will be selected through a random drawing from all applications received. Only 1 application entry is permitted, per student. The $500 scholarship award will be paid directly to the school on behalf of each scholarship winner. The deadline to submit an application is May 12, 2023, with the winners drawn on May 19, 2023.
