The scholarship was created to nurture and support the Oregon’s South Coast regional workers of the future.
Applicants must be high school seniors living in the port district and will be given special consideration if the senior is studying a trade or skills in the maritime, rail, or trade and logistics industries.
“The Port sees great value in investing in our youth and growing our workforce locally,” said Port CEO John Burns. “It is an essential component to cultivate our community and create opportunities to grow and thrive. As we look to the future of this community, it’s important to encourage our young people to pursue successful careers and return to the area.”
