Sam Houston EC Awards $82,500 to Local Students

Unclaimed capital credits mean scholarships for area students

Each year, Sam Houston Electric Cooperative awards scholarships to high school seniors whose parents or guardians are active consumer-members of the Cooperative. The money that funds the scholarship program comes from unclaimed capital credits that are returned to the Cooperative by the state of Texas and earmarked for scholarships.

After careful consideration of applicants’ academic achievements, activities, college plans, financial needs and personal recommendations, Sam Houston EC awarded a combined $82,500 to 31 graduating seniors. Scholarship winners may apply the funds toward tuition and fees at the Texas college or university of their choice.

Since its inception in 1992, the scholarship program has benefited more than 700 local students to the tune of more than $1 million.
