Structural empowerment has been studied in various organizations, but has not been studied in co-operative organizations, whereas empowerment is an important issue in co-operatives. Co-operative Structural empowerment is the ability of individuals to use co-operative structures to achieve their goals. The co-operative structure referred here is the opportunity, information, support, organizational resources, formal power and informal power that can be utilized by members to develop themselves. The co-operative is a movement that has been lasting for more than one hundred years and has succeeded in increasing the welfare of the poor and uneducated. The purpose of this study was to see the extent to which the role of education influences the structural empowerment of co-operative members. The research method used was a survey by collecting structural empowerment scale from 290 co-operatives members. Data were analyzed using one-way Analysis of Variance technique. The results showed that there were differences in the structural empowerment of co-operative members in terms of their education level. Secondary education has the highest mean followed by higher education and basic education. Therefore co-operatives have good prospects for secondary education graduates. The future of co-operatives lies with the graduates of secondary education.
