Jackson Purchase Energy Cooperative believes in the power of education. To help our Consumer-Members with college costs, we offer scholarship opportunities. 

Each year, JPEC offers ten $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors whose parents or guardians are served by JPEC. 

The requirements are:

  • The student must have a grade point average of at least 2.5 and an ACT score of 18 or better.
  • The student must submit a brief, typed narrative stating his/her reason for applying for the scholarship.

  • The student must submit a letter of recommendation from a school guidance counselor, teacher or principal.
  • All scholarship winners must submit an acceptance video by date of JPEC’s annual meeting. Each recipient will be recognized at that time.
