There’s money on the table for high school seniors who want to continue their education in forestry and natural resources.
The Linn County Small Woodlands Association offers $2,000 annual and renewable scholarships to Linn County residents and nearby students attending Linn County high schools.
The scholarships — to be used at colleges in Oregon —are funded by income from the LCSWA annual seedling sale.
This year’s record-setting sale netted $19,000 for the scholarship fund. There are currently two students enrolled in the program.
Scholarship committee chairman Katie Kohl heads up a team of volunteers who will interview applicants in late May.
Scholarships, said Kohl “will be awarded on the basis of academic achievement, honors and awards, school and community activities and college academic plans.”
