Scholarships are gifts – free money – for educational purposes. Most people are familiar with the idea of athletic scholarships, but in reality, all sorts of organizations give scholarships for all sorts of reasons. The Central Oregon region offers many local scholarships for students throughout the area. Last year, RPA students earned over $500,000 to support their academic pursuits!
