2023 Scholarship Winners

Our local high school students are so inspiring! This year we had an impressive group of students apply for Maps scholarships from across Marion and Polk counties. They shared their academic achievements, community involvement, and future goals with the selection committee. Creative videos highlighted their personal stories and how a Maps scholarship would help make their educational dreams a reality.

The Maps Community Foundation is pleased to be awarding a total of $46,000 in scholarships this year to 24 Mid-Willamette Valley graduating seniors to support the next chapter in their educational journeys. Scholarships range in size from $500 to $3,500 for the 2023-24 school year. You can read more about each of the recipients below and watch our latest video to learn more about one winner, Alex Ochoa, who attends West Salem High School and works with our Maps Titan Branch. Alex shares how the Maps Credit Union Scholarship
will make a difference for him and his family.
