GSEC Directors' Memorial Scholarship
The Directors’ Memorial Scholarship was established in 1991 to honor Directors who served on the Golden Spread Board and were dedicated to the development and advancement of rural electrification.
The scholarships are designated for families who are Member-Consumers of one of Golden Spread’s 16 Member Cooperatives. More specifically, eligibility is for any Member-Consumer, a spouse or child of a Member-Consumer or a child whose guardian is a Member-Consumer.
Student recipients receive a total of $2,000, providing $500 for each of four semesters for a student’s first two years. Eight students received scholarships in 2021. More than $135,000 in scholarship funds have been disbursed to 103 recipients since the first scholarship was awarded in 1995.
