The Wheat Belt Directors have authorized the following annual scholarships awarded directly from Wheat Belt.
- Two $500 scholarships to post high school educational facilities, to be awarded to students wanting to enter a technical field of study or a trades training program. Students must be customers or dependents of Wheat Belt customers to be eligible. OR
- One $2,000 scholarship to a student interested in pursuing a career as an electrical lineman and wanting to attend one of the approved area lineman schools. This scholarship will be dispersed in a manner recommended by the school to be attended. Students must live within an approximate 75 mile radius of Sidney to be eligible, and do not need to be dependents of Wheat Belt customers, although all other things being equal, a dependent of a Wheat Belt customer will receive preference over a non customer dependent.
Award selections are based on SAT/ACT scores, grade point average, work experience, participation in school and community activities, a statement by the student explaining his or her educational and career goals, and a written recommendation by a third party.
