Seneca Announces Two 2020 Scholarships for Children of Employees

October 21, 2019

Seneca will award two $5,000 scholarships in 2020 to Seneca employee family members.

Who:

Children/step-children and grandchildren/step-grandchildren of employees who have been good standing Seneca employees for at least three years.

Student must be a current high school senior or equivalent.

What:

Seneca supports any path students want to pursue. The scholarships are for any continuing education; tech, psychology, cosmetology, welding, or any

other focus that will help them find the pathway to their future career.  The continuing education establishment must accept federal funds and be

located within the United States.

When:

The OSAC portal for applications opens on November 1st, of 2019 and closes on March 1st of 2020.

All applications are Due by March 1st, 2020.  The recipients will be announced by June 1st, 2020.

How:

Submit a 1-page essay on one of the two following options:

  • What community service have you done and how do you plan to give back in the future?
  • Tell us how you showed initiative; what was the outcome, and what did you learn?

Eligible students apply through OSAC at oregonstudentaid.gov.  OSAC will ask for a school

transcript and a few short questions. This is standard practice for OSAC, and will not affect

how the Seneca Scholarship is granted.

 

Seneca is not choosing recipients based on academics, or future majors of interest. An outside

selection committee will choose two recipients based on their 1-page essays.

Seneca and the Jones family hope that these scholarships will help two lucky students obtain the continued education

they need in order to acquire the skills and future they desire.
