As part of our commitment to support the education of the members we serve, Medina EC awards scholarships to members who have a high school senior graduating or are adults pursuing higher education. The number and amount of scholarships vary annually.

Since scholarships were first awarded in 2000, Medina EC has awarded $582,500 for higher education to 398 members*. The program is funded by unclaimed capital credits. When capital credits remain unclaimed for three years, they are escheated back to the State of Texas. The state can then give a portion of that money back to the cooperative, which they have done in the past. These funds are used to fund the scholarship program, energy efficiency rebates and area economic development activities.


2019 Scholarship Program

In 2019, Medina EC awarded 25 $1,000 scholarships to members and their children who are pursuing their education.  Twenty scholarships were awarded to high school seniors and five to adults.

For details on eligibility and rules for Medina EC's scholarship program, please read the Official Rules and Requirements. Rules and requirements can change at any time, and the scholarship program is subject to annual board approval. If you're interested in applying, check back in January of 2020 for information and deadlines.

If you have  any questions or would like to be on the list to be notified when the scholarship application goes live, please email
