The Illinois Municipal Utilities Association (IMUA), in partnership with CWLP and other IMUA members, is offering a scholarship program to eligible high school seniors and awarding four $1,000 scholarships.

Eligible students are asked to submit an application and an essay of 500 words or less addressing their choice of one of four utility issue-related questions. Applicants must be high school seniors whose parents or legal guardians are residential customers of CWLP or another IMUA-member utility.

The deadline for submitting applications and essays is Friday, March 11, 2022. A committee of municipal utility officials will select a total of four finalists, each of whom will receive a certificate and a $1,000 scholarship award. Winners will be announced in April.

Application packets are available online. Applicants may contact DeeDee Bunch at (217.) 789-4632 or for more information.
