REMINDER: Applications are due to us by April 1st!
Are you studying agriculture or a natural resource science? Have you graduated from a Clackamas County High School or are you a current Clackamas County resident?
If you answered yes to these questions, then we have some good news for you! The Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to offer two scholarships of $2,000 each for the 2013-14 school year.
We have also increased the amount of the scholarships we are offering. Last year we offered two $1,000 scholarships, but at the February 2013 meeting the board of directors approved two $2,000 scholarships. The goal is to assist college students majoring in the field of agriculture (including horticulture), natural resource science, or a related discipline. With the cost of education skyrocketing, the board feels strongly about supporting future conservation professionals.
The scholarship money may be used toward receiving an associates, bachelors, or graduate degree. Students must have graduated from a Clackamas County high school or currently residing in Clackamas County. Applicants must have completed their freshman year and will be considered a sophomore or higher in fall 2013 to be eligible for the award! So don’t delay: applications are due April 1, 2013!
Clackamas County, ranked fourth in agricultural sales in the state of Oregon, is also known for its abundance of natural resources. These include popular recreational areas and the drinking water source for the Portland metropolitan area. For these reasons the Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District (CCSWCD) is committed to supporting local students who care about our natural resources and wish to promote conservation, impacting future natural resource decisions.
Scholarship applications maybe downloaded or picked up at the District office at 221 Molalla Ave Suite 102 Oregon City, OR 97045.
