The Oregon Seed Council announced the opening of its 2024 scholarship application process.
The Oregon Seed Council will be offering three college scholarships this year in the amounts of $2,000, $1,000 and $500.
A scholarship committee will review applications, conduct interviews and choose the scholarship recipients.
The scholarship will be available for college bound students who come from a farm involved in seed production, have worked on a seed farm or have worked for a seed company. High school seniors, home school seniors, or current college students are eligible. Past winners are encouraged to apply. Applications must include responses to a questionnaire, an essay of less than 500 words describing why the student deserves the scholarship, and three letters of reference.
The complete eligibility rules can be found on the Oregon Seed Council website.
