Powering Futures awards scholarships to local Sacramento students based on financial need and merit. The value of education and the impact it has on our lives, our families, and our communities is measured by the strength of our community and success of our society. We're proud to offer the Powering Futures Scholarship, a special program that awards scholarships totaling up to $60,000 each year. As many as 21 local Sacramento students may individually receive up to $4,000 in scholarships.
Minimum requirements: be a current high school senior or graduate, have earned a GED certificate, or currently be a postsecondary undergraduate student; have a minimum GPA of 3.0, based on a 4.0 scale; plan to enroll in an accredited 2 or 4 year college/university in the U.S. in the fall; and be a SMUD customer living in SMUD's service area, or have a parent or legal guardian as a SMUD customer. Awards will be based on merit and financial need with a preference for students with a major relevant to a career at SMUD. The scholarship is not open to SMUD employees or their relatives.
