The Grant County Futures Scholarship application for this year is now available.
The Grant County College Advisory Committee administers the funds, which must be used by students who are pursuing online or on-site classes or degrees from Blue Mountain Community College or Eastern Oregon University through the Grant County Center in the ESD building, 835 S. Canyon Blvd., John Day. Applications are available at the center and online through the ESD scholarship page, grantesd.k12.or.us. Applications are due at 4 p.m. April 27.
Applicants must be county residents for one year, demonstrate financial need, provide a letter of recommendation and present a specific request.
The funds benefit those who want to increase job skills, who have never taken a college course or who are working on degrees but cannot do so full time.
Additional funds are available this year due to a sizable donation in memory of Jack McKenna from Blue Mountain TV Cable Company.
Contact the center at 541-575-2168 or 541-575-1550 for more information.
