SAGLE — Continuing Northern Lights’ history of supporting education, the co-op is now accepting applications for the scholarship program. The NLI Board of Directors has authorized (8) eight $1,500 educational scholarships and (1) one $3,000 line worker school scholarship. The scholarships will be presented at NLI’s 83rd Annual Meeting on Saturday, May 12, at Sandpoint Business and Events Center.

The eight educational scholarships are for graduating high school seniors entering college or vocational school, or a current undergraduate student. Graduate students are not eligible. The applicant or their parent/guardian must be a member of NLI to qualify. NLI employees, directors and their families are not eligible to apply for the educational scholarship.

The line worker school scholarship is for someone enrolled or planning to enroll in line worker school. The applicant or their parent/guardian must be a member of NLI, or the applicant’s parent/guardian must be an employee of NLI.

Once proof of enrollment is received, the funds will be sent directly to the college or university in the student’s name during the fall semester.

Educational scholarships must be claimed by December 31, 2018 and the line worker scholarship by May 1, 2019, or the money will be forfeited.
