PLEASE NOTE: SCHOLARSHIPS ARE CLOSED FOR 2019. CHECK BACK IN EARLY 2020 FOR PROGRAM UPDATES. Scholarships and Continuing Education Grants available with the Sammamish Valley Grange.
We were happy to award grants in 2019 to several farmers and students working in the Sammamish Valley, including: Andrew and Antoine with Regeneration Farm.
The Sammamish Valley Grange provides funds annually for scholarships to individuals. The Grange desires to support Grange members, their dependents, and members of the Sammamish Valley community who are furthering their training and education. Our goal, is that this support will help strengthen and support farming, our Grange and its goals, and the Sammamish Valley community.
What programs will be considered?
- Programs offered by accredited institutions leading to a degree or certificate will be considered for scholarships.
- Classes and workshops directly pertaining to farming, agriculture, or another topic supportive to Grange goals will be considered for continuing education grants. Classes taken by members of the Sammamish Valley community that will directly benefit the Sammamish Valley Grange (current Grange members and family will be given priority). This may involve sharing that information in a Grange lecture meeting, in a Grange program or alternatively further enable the Grange member to better fulfill a role at the Sammamish Valley Grange.
What will be the amount of the Scholarship or Grant?
- The number of scholarships and grants awarded will depend on how many applications are submitted and approved for consideration. The amount will not exceed the cost of tuition, and course-required books and supplies for any individual.
- A total of $500 will be reserved specifically for five or more grants, up to $100 each, to members of the Sammamish Valley community (with priority given to current Grange members and family) for continuing education. The amount will not exceed the cost of tuition and course-required books and supplies for each class.
