Basin Electric/Lake Region Electric


The Basin Electric Power Cooperative (BEPC) Scholarship is funded by LREA’s energy partner, Basin Electric. This $1,000 is awarded to the dependent children, including adopted or stepchildren, of member-owners of Lake Region Electric Association. The applicant must be a U.S. citizen and must be a student who is enrolled, or is planning to enroll, in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited, two-year or four-year college, university or vocational/technical school.

Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, a statement of education and career goals, and an outside appraisal.

Lake Region will be responsible to select one recipient to be awarded a scholarship in the member-cooperative consumer category. The final recipient's completed application will then be forwarded to Basin Electric Power Cooperative by Lake Region.

What are the recipient's obligations?

If the recipient is not enrolled as a full-time student during the fall semester after receiving the scholarship they will forfeit the monetary award. The scholarships are for one year only.

Except for the requirements outlined, no obligations will be imposed upon the student as a scholarship winner. Other than payment of the scholarship, no obligations or liability are assumed by Basin Electric, it's subsidiaries or Lake Region Electric.
