Scholarships Offered to Local Students

The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to offer three $1,500 scholarships for the 2017-18 school year!

The scholarship money may be used toward earning an associate, bachelor, or graduate degree. Students must have graduated from a Clackamas County high school or currently reside in Clackamas County. Applicants must have completed their freshman year and will be considered a sophomore or higher in fall 2017 to be eligible for the award.

Why Offer Scholarships?

The goal is to assist college students majoring in the fields of agriculture (including horticulture), natural resource science, or a related discipline. With the cost of education skyrocketing, the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District board feels strongly about supporting future conservation professionals.

Over the last six years the District has offered over $22,500 in scholarships to local students. Those receiving the awards were pursuing degrees to reach their career goals. For examples we have supported students studying to become engineers, veterinarians, and farmers. Students attended local community colleges as well as four-year colleges and universities. We encourage students to apply for these scholarships!
