2017-18 Grange #306 Scholarships
The Sebastopol Grange provides four types of funding for education:
The Member Education Scholarship (worth up to $250) is for a member to attend a class or event that will improve the knowledge base in our grange community. Applications for spring grants are due on Feb. 1 and for fall grants on Sept. 1.
The School Program Grant (worth up to $300) for a local school program or project to further the grange goals of a healthy environment, sustainable agriculture and food systems or community service. Applications for spring grants are due on Feb. 1 and for fall grants on Sept. 1.
The Youth Scholarship, to support school or college study, will be due February 1. We will be awarding at least two scholarships for up to $500.
Our latest grant is called the Grange Community Impact Grant and it is designed to encourage programs or educational events that will benefit both Grange members and the community. We are looking for good ideas and proposals; please talk to a scholarship committee member or see details in the application.
Please read the 2017-18 Grange #306 Scholarship Descriptions document to find out who can request a scholarship and for what purposes. Priority will be given to those who have not received a Sebastopol Grange scholarship in the last two years.
