New-Mac Electric Scholarship Program
New-Mac offers scholarships to seniors at area high schools
New-Mac Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for our 2021 College Scholarship Program.
This marks the sixth consecutive year in which New-Mac will be awarding one scholarship to a high school senior in each of the 10 school districts.
In order to be eligible to receive one of the scholarships, a student must be a senior attending one of the following high schools: Carthage, Diamond, East Newton, Joplin, McDonald County, Neosho, Pierce City, Sarcoxie, Seneca or Wheaton. The applicant's parent(s)/guardian(s) must be member(s) of New-Mac Electric Cooperative, and the applicant must have a cumulative minimum 3.0 GPA. Immediate family members of New-Mac employees/board members are ineligible.
A total of 10 scholarships will be awarded. Each scholarship will be in the amount of $500 and will be non-renewable. One scholarship will be awarded to a qualifying student in each of the aforementioned 10 schools. The scholarship must be used at an accredited college or university, and the winner must become a full-time college student, beginning in the fall of 2021.
