PENDLETON — The Blue Mountain Community College (BMCC) Foundation announced 127 students are awarded 132 Foundation scholarships for the academic year 2020-2021.

Scholarships are awarded on a criterion for academic performance and need, which covers tuition and educational expenses while attending BMCC. These students share a goal to make a positive impact in their communities and the world. The Foundation receives nearly 200 scholarship applications from students across 10 Oregon counties and four adjacent states.

“We have an outstanding cross-section of students this year. One theme that stood out, again and again, is the importance of perspective, and how problem-solving in any relationship or obstacle is always best facilitated when approached with an open-mind and willingness to look at things from all sides," said Ken Daniel, executive director. "We all have so much to learn from these students and their thoughtful insights.”
