Mor-Gran-Sou is pleased to announce that we are offering more scholarships this year
Mor-Gran-Sou Electric Cooperative takes pride in assisting with the development of rural leadership through our scholarship program. We feel it’s important to help finance our local students’ educational journeys by offering scholarships to qualifying seniors. With this in mind, we are happy to announce that we have updated our program to include more scholarship opportunities to our graduating seniors. The applicants must be U.S. citizens and dependents of Mor-Gran-Sou members. All scholarships will be awarded during the 2017-2018 school year.
