Luck of the Draw Scholarships
$1,000 Scholarships Available
APPLICATION DEADLINE HAS PASSED FOR 2018.
LEC is again offering $1,000 Luck of the Draw scholarships to our members and their dependents. Students who have won in the past are welcome to apply again as long as they continue to meet all the eligibility requirements. The winners are randomly drawn from all eligible received applications. This is a unique approach as it gives all eligible applicants an equal chance of winning.
These scholarships are available for students of all ages provided they are used toward the student's first undergraduate degree or certificate at an accredited two-year, four-year, trade, or vocational institution for the upcoming 2018 fall term. The student or their parent/legal guardian must be a member of LEC. The drawing is held at our Annual Meeting on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Lincoln County High School Auditorium in Eureka. The student or a designated LEC member* must be present to win. Please see the application attached below for the full list of eligibility requirements.
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 and is earning interest. Every effort is made to notify members of unclaimed capital credits before placing the money in the account.
*FEBRUARY 27, 2018 LUCK OF THE DRAW UPDATE
Due to a conflict with Spring Break, the LEC Board of Trustees has amended the Luck of the Draw scholarship program requirements for 2018. If the student or their parent/legal guardian is unable to attend the Annual Meeting, the student may designate an immediate family member (grandparent, aunt, uncle, or sibling) to attend the Annual Meeting on their behalf. This family member must be an active member of Lincoln Electric and provide their information and signature on the updated application attached below.
