HELIX — The Umatilla-Morrow County Farm Bureau is offering up to $3,000 in scholarships to high school seniors in Umatilla and Morrow counties who will be attending any school of higher education, including trade school, university and community college.
Students will be selected by a scholarship committee of UMCFB board members. Priority consideration will be given to those with an agricultural background, FFA or an intended major in an agriculture-related field.
Successful applicants will be selected based on accomplishments and need. Family membership in UMCFB is not a requirement for application, nor is a high GPA. Emphasis will be placed on ability, personal goals, school and community participation, and citizenship.
Applications are available from high school counselors in Umatilla and Morrow counties, and are due no later than April 15, 2018. For more information, contact Julia Spratling at P.O. Box 309, Helix, OR 97835 or call 541-457-6045.
