A $1,000 scholarship for graduating seniors is offered to recognize graduates from each of the Oregon Wheat Growers League counties or regions. To be eligible to apply for this award, the student’s family must be a grower member of the OWGL or an employee of a grower member. The scholarship is also offered to high school seniors who work part time for a grower member.
A scholarship may be awarded in one of the following wheat producing counties or regions: Central Oregon, Gilliam, Klamath, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, Union/Baker, Wallowa, Wasco, North Willamette Valley and South Willamette Valley.
All applicants must be planning to enroll in a University or two-year Community College with the intent of completing a bachelor’s degree.
Congratulations to our scholarship winners! The Oregon Wheat Foundation awarded $1,000 scholarships to nine high school seniors in May, 2016. Students were judged on their community involvement, academic achievement and an essay on a wheat industry topic.
