Grant County students of higher education who apply for the Wayne Stewart Scholarship should take note of an earlier deadline this year.

Applications must be postmarked by Friday, June 28. There is also a new mailing address for the applications.

A total of $608,000 was awarded to 122 recipients for the 2018-2019 scholarship year. The funds are available thanks to the late benefactors Wayne Stewart of Dayville and his son Eminger Stewart III, who made provisions in their wills for a perpetual scholarship.

For applications and more information, visit the Grant County Education Service District website at, and click on “Scholarships.”

Scholarships should be mailed to U.S. Bank Wealth Management, Trust Department, 131 E. Main St., Medford, OR 97501.
