Greenfield Peace Scholarship

Del_Greenfield_photo.jpgThe Greenfield Peace 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.

Named in honor of Del Greenfield, our longtime Executive Director (pictured here), the scholarship is in its 13th consecutive year in 2021.

The theme of this year’s scholarship is Art & Creation: Self Expression, Activism, and Social Change. This has historically been a writing scholarship open to all Oregon 11th and 12th grade students. This year, though, Oregon PSR is asking young Oregonians who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) and who are high school juniors or seniors or the equivalent to respond to the prompt by creating a work of visual art. The scholarship’s goal is to illuminate the perspectives of Oregon's youth on issues of peace, health, justice, and safety in our world.

The 2021 Greenfield Peace Scholarship is now open for submissions. Continue reading for the prompt, resources, and the scholarship application.
