Chemeketa accepts 546 scholarsChemeketa Community College has awarded 546 Chemeketa Scholars scholarships for the 2015-16 academic year. The application period closed in March.

Chemeketa Scholars are high-achieving students who receive a full tuition scholarship for up to two years in any field of study, including career technical programs.

Chemeketa President Julie Huckestein says the scholars program is an investment that pays off for the community, “While the college foregoes tuition revenue, our Chemeketa Scholars program makes higher education possible for deserving students who are unable to afford tuition.”

Since Chemeketa Scholars first enrolled in 2008, over 2,000 students have attended Chemeketa tuition-free.  The scholarships are available to qualifying high school students, home-schooled students and military veterans who live or attended school in Chemeketa’s service district.
