2022 Scholarship Recipients

2022 Scholarship Recipients

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. 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. Golden West is excited to introduce the 2022 scholarship winners.
