Scholarships are awarded each year at Grand Assembly to Rainbow Girls who are members in good standing of Oregon Rainbow Assemblies and attending college. Awards are based on financial need, academic merit, Rainbow service and community service.
Purpose: The Scholarship Funds were created in an effort to encourage young women to attend institutions of higher learning and to help make such a worthy endeavor possible by providing financial assistance. The scholarship awards are gifts and the applicant is not expected to refund or in any way pay back the money to the Grand Assembly. There are no restrictions placed on what field of study a girl may wish to enter.
Qualifications: The Scholarship Committee will review applications to make awards based on several factors: An applicant must demonstrate active Rainbow service measured by years of service; perfect attendance awards; offices held both locally and for Grand Assembly; the number of petitions sponsored during the last calendar year; and must be or have been a member in good standing of Oregon Rainbow. There has been great interest and competition for scholarships in the last few years and the committee has had a difficult time in narrowing down the list of applicants to recipients. This year, all other factors being equal, there will be special emphasis placed on the number of petitions sponsored by an applicant in the last calendar year.
Along with the Application, there must be enclosed the following supporting documents:
The Committee is not at liberty to act on any application until all of the four requirements have been submitted. Should you have any questions concerning the scholarship, its requirements or awards, please do not hesitate to contact the Chair or any member of the Committee. We are pleased to be a part of your Grand Assembly encouraging young girls to seek higher education. All scholarship award checks will be sent directly to the school.
The deadline for application is April 15th annually.
