One of our goals as a cooperative is to support the communities we serve, and investing in our future is one way we accomplish that. We are proud to offer a scholarship program that enables local students to pursue their education goals. The San Patricio Electric Education Trust was established in 1999 to help local students with the expense of higher education and further the co-op’s commitment to giving back to the communities it serves. Since its inception, the San Patricio Electric Education Trust has awarded nearly $1.2 million in scholarships to local students.
