Education Foundation Update Jan. 19, 2022

Every year Medford Valley submits applications from students to receive scholarships from the Orient of Oregon Scottish Rite Education fund. In the past the process has been cumbersome, and at times confusing for all involved. This year we have launched a new website that will help streamline the application process for you and most importantly, the students.  The website can be found here: https://orsrscholarships.com

Another change is that the Scottish Rite have partnered with ASPIRE Oregon. The ASPIRE program helps students plan for their postsecondary education and future career. Trained volunteer mentors consisting of counselors, teachers, and parents work with middle and high school students to explore colleges, research career training options, and apply for financial aid. It is a program operated by the Office of Student Access and Completion, which is a department in the State of Oregon’s Higher Education Coordinating Commission.

I want to assure you the process is essentially still the same. As in the past, students will fill out their application with the difference being the application process is now done completely online. Once the application is received at the scholarships website, the application will be forwarded to the Medford Valley Scottish Rite for review and approval. Once the top picks from Medford Valley have been decided, the approved application (s) will be forwarded to the Orient of Oregon Scottish Rite Education fund, and they will award out the scholarships.

My hope is that with these changes we will see an increase in students applying for our scholarships, and a lot less confusion for all parties involved.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out to the contact info below.

Sincerely and fraternally,
