The Clatsop County Master Gardener Association (CCMGA) is now seeking applicants for its annual scholarship program.
Awards up to $1,000 will be granted to one or more high school seniors who reside in Clatsop County and whose further education–at college, university, vocational school, or training program–will help them develop skills that contribute to the advancement of sound gardening practices while leading to an advanced degree, license, or certification.
The CCMGA scholarship program is open to all high school students from the county, including those who are home-schooled as well as those attending public or private high schools. Awards are made based on a student’s academic standing and interest in horticulture or a related field.
Applicants must submit a completed application and essay, along with high school transcripts and two letters of recommendation, and may undergo an interview with members of the CCMGA Scholarship Committee. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, April 23, 2021.
Applications can be obtained by contacting high school counselors’ offices, downloaded along with instructions at www.clatsopmastergardeners.org/CCMGA-Scholarship, requested via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone (503) 325-0916.
