Each year, the Washington County Farm Bureau offers a variety of scholarships to local students planning to continue their education.
High school seniors enrolling in an Oregon school of higher education and planning a career in agriculture, education/teaching, or nursing are eligible for $1,000 scholarships.
Additionally, there are two scholarships for students interested in vocational careers, including diesel mechanics, welding, nurses aides, teachers aides, and nursery and greenhouse careers.
Local students pursuing degrees at Oregon State Universitys School of Agriculture are eligible for $3,000 scholarships through Washington County Agriculture Education. Among the requirements are being a junior, senior, or fifth-year student earning a degree in horticulture, soil science, agri-business management, veterinary, animal husbandry or nursery.
The deadline for all scholarships is April 1.
