Annually, up to twelve 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.
