Center for community and justice 

 

Purpose


The purpose of the fund is to provide college, university and vocational and technical school scholarships to the children of migrant seasonal farmworkers who reside in Idaho and Malheur, Harney, Grant and Baker counties in Oregon.

Are you involved? Do you contribute to the greater good in our community?


We look for students who use their talents and tie to help others.


We believe that students that show commitment to their community continue to do so throughout college an beyond!


We think the community will reap the benefits if students like you pursue a higher education.

The Committee will make their decision during May; scholarships will be awarded on May 22, 2017.
