Each year, Norris Public Power District offers one $1,500 Utility Line – Electric Lineman Training Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a first year student who has been accepted into the Utility Line Program at Northeast Community College in Norfolk or Metropolitan Community College in Omaha.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
- Must be a U.S. Citizen
- Graduated high school within the past two years
- High school cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Rank in the upper 50% of their graduating class
- Parents or step-parents must be customers of Norris Public Power District
In addition to meeting the application requirements, all scholarship finalists are interviewed by the Norris Public Power District Scholarship Committee prior to selecting a scholarship recipient.
Students who are considering a career as an electric lineman should apply for admission to either Northeast Community College or Metropolitan Community College as soon as possible as enrollment in this program is limited and based on the date of acceptance. Norris Public Power District will send scholarship funds directly to the institution the recipient is attending, and the funds will be credited towards tuition only.
Scholarship applications for the 2020-2021 year should be completed and returned to Vicky Jurgens, Norris Public Power District, 606 Irving Street, P. O. Box 399, Beatrice, NE 68310-0399, by December 31, 2019.
