Tenaska Scholarships

Founded in 1987, Tenaska is one of the leading independent energy companies in the United States, with a reputation for high standards and expertise in natural gas and electric power marketing, energy management, development and acquisition of energy assets, and operation of generating facilities.

Headquartered in Omaha, Neb., Tenaska has grown to include 12 natural gas and renewable energy generating plants and eight office locations across the United States and Canada.

Tenaska’s culture is grounded in a decades-strong foundation of ethics, expertise and entrepreneurship and recognizes that being a leader is about more than financial success – it’s about being a force for good in the communities where our people live and work. Tenaska demonstrates this commitment to education through scholarship programs we have established to help high school seniors reach their academic goals.
