Deadline approaching for Chemeketa Foundation scholarships


Students attending Chemeketa Community College in the fall have until March 31 to apply for scholarships from the college’s foundation.

Applications are now open. Completing one application allows students to be considered for more than 140 scholarships and assistance funds the college foundation offers. Some scholarships are open to students in specific academic programs, while others have more general requirements.

Students must have completed either a federal or Oregon student aid application to apply, but some scholarships are available to students who are not eligible for financial aid. Students do not need a Social Security number to apply.

Students can either be currently enrolled at Chemeketa or prospective students who plan to begin classes in the fall. Awards are announced starting in April through July. More information and application instructions are available on the college’s website.
