The scholarship program is funded by unclaimed capital credits. When capital credits remain unclaimed for three years, they are escheated to the State of Texas. The state can then allocate a portion of that money back to the cooperative. Money allocated back to the cooperative is used to offer scholarships, promote energy efficiency or encourage area economic development.
