ARPA - Town of Springfield Scholarship
The Arkansas River Power Authority and the Town of Springfield Municipal Electric Utility are accepting college scholarship applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. ARPA is offering one $500 scholarship to a high school senior in each of its member cities. The Springfield Municipal Electric Utility will match the ARPA award, resulting in a $1,000 scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.
To be eligible, a student must be a high school senior residing with a family receiving electric service from the Town of Springfield Municipal Utility. The application deadline is April 30, 2018. Application forms, scholarship requirements, and eligibility criteria are available either through the High School Counseling Office or at the Town of Springfield. A local selection committee will name the winner of the award. The winner of the scholarship will be announced in May.
Darwin Hansen, ARPA Board member from Springfield commented, “The ARPA-Springfield Scholarship Program is an effort to encourage the higher education aspirations of our local students. We hope the program will generate a lot of interest among this year’s high school seniors.”
