American Municipal Power Scholarships Program

American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) has announced the availability of up to 10 $3,000 one-time scholarships available for graduating high school students.

Recipients will be announced in the spring for up to five Lyle B. Wright and up to five Richard H. Gorsuch scholarships. More than $408,000 has been presented to college-bound high school seniors by AMP since the scholarship programs began in 1988. The AMP Board of Trustees created the scholarship awards in honor of two distinguished leaders in public power history.

Lyle B. Wright was a long-time public power advocate and AMP board member from Bowling Green, Ohio. Lyle B. Wright Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors whose households receive electricity from an AMP member municipal electric system.

Hudson Public Power nominates one candidate to AMP. Applications with requirements listed are available here, from your High School Guidance Counselor, and the City of Hudson Public Works Department in November. The deadline for application is December 10 at 4 p.m.

For more information contact the Hudson Public Works Department at (330) 342-1750 or visit the AMP Lyle B. Wright Scholarship website.
