Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship

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.

Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility extends our most sincere appreciation to all of the Oregon high school juniors and seniors who submitted essays, poems, and works of fiction for our 2020 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship. The question for Oregon high school 11th and 12th-grade students to answer this year was: "How would an effective movement for climate justice benefit immigrant communities?".
