Mesa Hotline School Scholarship Program Guidelines & Requirements

Mesa Hotline School’s Board of Directors believes that it is in the best interest of their Member Companies to support the education of future employees in the power line worker industry. Mesa Hotline School’s Board of Directors has given approval for a maximum of ten $1500 scholarships to be awarded. The ten scholarships will be given to students attending accredited programs in the power line worker industry.

  1. Describe what motivated you to want to work in the electrical industry and become a lineman.
