High School students living in Northeast Oregon are encouraged to apply for scholarship money through the Umatilla-Morrow County Farm Bureau. The UMCFB will award 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. Priority consideration will be given to those with an agricultural background, FFA participation, or an intended major in an agriculture-related field.
Students will be selected by a scholarship committee of UMCFB board members. Successful applicants will be selected based on accomplishments and need. Applicants do not need to come from a Farm Bureau member family, nor is a high GPA a requirement. Emphasis will be placed on ability, personal goals, school and community participation, and citizenship.
Application must be submitted by April 15th.
