Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship

In its twelfth consecutive year in 2020, the Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship is an opportunity to hear from young Oregonians on some of the most pressing issues of our time. We sponsor this annual writing scholarship in order to encourage Oregon’s youth to consider their leadership role in promoting a more healthy, just, and peaceful world.

Thank you to the 80 Oregon high school 11th and 12th-grade students who answered the question "How would an effective movement for climate justice benefit immigrant communities" this year. We will inform the winners by mid-April.


Due to the potential health risks posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship Awards Ceremony will be an online event this year. We hope that you will join us online on Saturday, April 25th! Please RSVP to receive the login information.
