                                       SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 2017




The Cloud Peak Energy Scholarship Program is designed to recognize academic achievements of, and/or to provide financial assistance to, Cloud Peak Energy employee dependents.




Applicants must be a high school graduate or graduating high school senior and must have been accepted to attend an accredited college, university or trade school as a full time student.  Applicants must be a dependent child of a current or retired employee, or the dependent child of an employee who was employed at the time of their death.  Dependents may include natural, adopted and stepchildren, foster children, and other related minors who are dependent on the employee for total support.  Dependents must reside with or be claimed for tax purposes by the employee or retiree. Proof of dependency may be requested.  Eligibility may terminate upon the employee’s termination (other than retirement or death).


Students in all disciplines will be eligible to participate; however, preference will be given to those students having a definite career objective.




Scholarships will only be awarded for attendance at an accredited trade school or accredited two or four-year college or university.  Scholarships will be awarded to those students who are working towards an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Masters and PhD’s are excluded from eligibility


Eligible institutions must meet at least one of the criteria set forth below:


A college or university meeting the accreditation requirements of one of the regional accrediting bodies associated with the American Council of Education.
A community or junior college or a college preparatory, secondary, trade, technical, or business school approved by an appropriate governmental agency or state department of education or other reputable agency.





Cloud Peak Energy will normally use a committee comprised of appropriate staff/faculty members of an outside academic institution.  This committee will review applications from all company locations and make final scholarship award selections. 




Recipients will be selected based on academic achievement (including GPA, ACT/SAT scores, etc.), auxiliary activities and interests, community involvement, and financial need.  The receipt of other scholarships and/or grants may also be used as selection criteria.




The number of scholarships awarded on an annual basis will normally be limited to fifteen (15).  Scholarships will be in the amount of $1000.  Payment will be made in one lump sum to the college after proof of registration as a full-time student at an eligible institution has been submitted to Cloud Peak Energy’s Human Resources Department.




Students may reapply for scholarships up to three additional years beyond their Freshman year.  Previous receipt of a scholarship does not guarantee receipt in any subsequent year.




CPE will be utilizing an on-line application process (see attached instructions). Completed applications must be received by the Human Resources Department at the Cloud Peak Energy Gillette Office March 10, 2017.  Applications received after this date, will not be considered.
