LEC has awarded over $154,000 in Luck of the Draw scholarships to our members and/or their dependents since 2010. The Luck of the Draw scholarship program is not funded directly through electric rates, nor will it affect rates. LEC’s scholarship funds come from unclaimed capital credit money that has been placed in an account earning interest. Every effort is made to notify members of unclaimed capital credits before placing the money in the account.
