$5,000 -Second runner-up
Seneca is providing students with the opportunity to write an essay about the viability of Oregon’s natural resources and in turn, the top three students with the most outstanding essays will be awarded a $10,000, $7,000 and $5,000 college scholarship for any college in the United States and any field they choose to major.
Seneca’s mission in this is for students to learn about Oregon’s greatest natural resource in the process of this application. While most scholarships aim to narrow their pool of applicants, Seneca views this as a unique opportunity to give all students, no matter their demographic, financial need, or academic standing, the chance to earn a college scholarship with their excellence in research and creativity.
