Scholarships

Each year Lane Electric awards more than $20,000 in scholarships to help people pursue their academic or vocational goals. To apply you must be a resident, or dependent of a resident, of our service territory.

In addition to scholarships, the cooperative also appoints one high school junior as a delegate for the annual National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Youth Tour.
