2022 Scholarship Winners Exemplify Success

Golden West’s scholarship program has been going strong since 1999. Every year, the cooperative awards $1,000 scholarships to more than 40 deserving high school seniors across the service territory. Contributions now total over $1 million! These students possess qualities including leadership, academic success, civic and extracurricular achievement, and the motivation to succeed.

Now in its 24th year, the scholarship program has contributed over $1 million in educational support since its launch.
