SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Sun Prairie Utilities believes that investing in the education of our youth is an investment in our community. That is why we have made a commitment to encouraging them to continue their education beyond high school.

Each year, Sun Prairie Utilities, along with our power supplier WPPI Energy, offers two $500 high school scholarships to Sun Prairie Seniors who plan to attend a two-year technical college or a four-year university.

Applicants will be judged on a variety of criteria, including academic and extracurricular achievement, work and volunteer experience, and future career goals.

Our scholarship program is designed to provide educational opportunities for promising local students and to promote awareness of our community-owned utility. To be eligible, students or their parents/guardians must be customers of Sun Prairie Utilities.

Download application here. Applications are due to the Guidance Office by April 1.
