For the third year in a row, Wayne-White Electric will award ten (10) $500 scholarships at our Annual Meeting at Wayne City High School on June 7, 2024. A very simple application form is now available in our office and here on our website. Each student who enters must be the child of an active Cooperative member. (Please note, customers of the City of Fairfield are not Wayne-White Electric members and would not qualify for this scholarship.)
While applications from a child of a Wayne-White Electric employee or board member are not eligible, any of their grandchildren are eligible to apply. Students can choose to attend a community college or university and must be enrolled full-time at that institution in the upcoming 2024 fall semester. Verification of enrollment will have to be provided to the Cooperative before payment will be issued to the recipient's institution of choice.
Winners will be selected through a random drawing from all applications received. Only one application entry is permitted, per student. The deadline to submit an application is April 15, 2024 by 5 p.m. Winners will be drawn on April 17, 2024 and notified by means of contact provided on their applications. All winners will be required to attend our Annual Meeting at Wayne City High School on June 7, 2024.
Applications can be printed and mailed to PO Drawer E, Fairfield, IL 62837 or dropped off at our Fairfield or Enfield offices during regular business hours or in the drop boxes after hours. They can also be faxed to (618) 842-4497 or emailed to Alyssa Parrott at email@example.com. You can also submit one electronically from the link above. Applications not in hand by 5 p.m. on April 15, 2024 will not be able to be considered.
