We are pleased to announce the annual Oregon Wheat Foundation Scholarship Program to promote further education of our youth. Annually, up to twelve $1000 scholarships will be awarded to graduating high school seniors who are sons or daughters of a grower member of the Oregon Wheat Growers League, or whose parents are employed by a grower member of the Oregon Wheat Growers League. The scholarship is also open to students who have worked summers for grower members.

Scholarship winners will be selected on school and community involvement, scholastic performance, and an essay on the wheat industry. Interested students are asked to complete the application below.

Application deadline closes February 1, annually.

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.

Applicants must be planning to enroll in a University, two-year Community College with the intent of completing a degree, or be planning to enroll in an accredited vocational or technical program. If you have questions regarding this please contact us.

Selected recipients will be awarded the $1,000 after the first term transcripts are submitted to the OWF Office.
