The Rotary Club of Wallowa County has extended the deadline to apply for its 2020 scholarships to 5 p.m. Thursday, April 30, because COVID-19 restrictions may have affected students' ability to learn about the grants from schools.
Any graduating high school senior in Wallowa County is eligible to apply for a total of $5,000 in scholarships. Applications are available from each high school and by contacting Anette Christoffersen, the club's scholarship committee chairwoman, at email@example.com
The Rotary Club has offered scholarships for several decades in its commitment to the county's youth. Its scholarship endowment is funded by contributions from Rotarians, other local residents and fundraising activities such as the Lostine River Run in July.
Scholarships are paid when the recipient begins his or her sophomore year in college.
