Continuing Northern Lights’ history of supporting education, the co-op is now accepting applications for the scholarship program. The NLI Board of Directors has authorized eight $1,500 educational scholarships and one $3,000 lineworker school scholarship.

The eight educational scholarships are for graduating high school seniors entering college or vocational school, or a current undergraduate student. Graduate students are not eligible. The applicant or their parent/guardian must be a member of NLI to qualify. NLI employees, directors and their families are not eligible to apply for the educational scholarship.

The one lineworker school scholarship is for someone enrolled or planning to enroll in lineworker school. The applicant or their parent/guardian must be a member, or the applicant’s parent/guardian must be an NLI employee.

The 2020 scholarship program application process closed on April 10, 2020

The NLI scholarship committee will select the nine scholarship winners. Winners will be notified by May 1, 2020. A scholarship certificate announcing the award will be presented to each of the winners in time for recognition during graduation ceremonies, if applicable.
