The Oregon Extension Fall 2016 Stipend
Once again, the Oregon Extension has been awarded a development grant for the fall of 2016 from the Clif Bar Family Foundation. Under the terms of the grant, any student who applies and is accepted for this coming fall will receive a $2,000 stipend for the semester. The stipend may be used to pay for room, board, activities fee, books, tuition, travel, or any expenses related to the semester, after the semester begins. This is a one-semester grant and applies only to the fall 2016 Oregon Extension program. Spaces for the fall are limited. The $2,000 stipend will be awarded to all fall students.
What is the Oregon Extension?
The Oregon Extension offers a fall semester of accredited college studies for the student who wants a more down to earth, honest, lively and deeply engaged learning experience in an intentional community setting – the student who does not want to say, on graduation day, “It happened so fast. I know a lot of things, but I’m not clear on why they matter or what I can do about any of it.” Settle into our mountain hideaway in the southern Oregon Cascades for a four-month conversation with professors and peers who love to read books, ask big questions, and confront big ideas. Move out of the current where you can think about issues that tug at you, cultivate friendships, feel the touch of the breeze in the forest, listen to the stream in the canyon, and reach some understanding about what things mean and why they are worth caring about. Explore this unique alternative semester for Christian college students and other honest seekers.
The Oregon Extension operates under the oversight of the non-profit organization, Greensprings Learning Community (GLC). Oregon Extension credit is granted by Eastern Mennonite University of Harrisonburg, VA, which is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
