Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative (LMRE) is committed to enriching the lives of those it serves, including its youngest members! That’s why LMRE offers several scholarship opportunities to local high school students each year. See below for details on each scholarship opportunity – please note that for each scholarship, an official high school transcript and one letter of recommendation is required upon application. If the student chooses to apply through our website, these materials should be ready during the application process. Applications for all scholarships are due to the co-op each year on February 2.
