2021 Scholarship Recipients

Now in its 23nd year, the Golden West Scholarship program promotes educational opportunity for students within the Golden West service area. The Wall-based company has given nearly 1,000 scholarships totally about $1 million since the program began. Each year, Golden West awards $1,000 scholarships to up to 47 graduating seniors, one for each high school in the Golden West exchanges plus one at-large scholarship.

“Golden West scholarships are awarded to students who excel in school and in the community,” says Golden West General Manager Denny Law. “We’re proud to help students further their education and become a leader of tomorrow.”
