The Cooperative provides scholarships of $1,000 to two graduating seniors of Barrow High School annually. The amount and number of scholarships may be changed by the board of directors. The scholarship application window is now closed, but generally opens in late February each year.
Applicants are required to be a high school senior who resides in Barrow, Alaska and must be a dependent of an active cooperative member. Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and complete questions related to utilities, goals, and community involvement.
