Kiowa Power Partners, LLC, owner of Tenaska Kiamichi Generating Station near Kiowa is sponsoring $17,500 in academic scholarships for college-bound Kiowa High School seniors again this year.

Tenaska, one of the leading independent power producers in the United States, manages scholarship programs in communities where its generating facilities are located. To date, more than $900,000 in scholarships have been awarded to students across the country.

Students graduating in spring 2023 who will attend a two- or four-year post-secondary education program at an accredited institution may apply. Scholarship applications are available through school guidance counselors or at tenaska.com/plantscholarships/. Completed applications must be submitted no later than Feb. 10. Winners will be announced in the spring. Seven $2,500 scholarships will be awarded.

“Tenaska is proud to support Kiowa’s future leaders through our local scholarship program,” said Tom Hanes, Plant Manager for Tenaska Kiamichi Generating Station. “It is rewarding to help promising high school seniors realize their potential and further their education.”

A committee at Tenaska’s headquarters will select the scholarship recipients. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate that they are prepared for college study, have good character and rank in the top half of their class.
