Who Can Apply:
- Kris Lewis was a beloved mother who had a deep love for her community and town and was passionate about supporting students who were disadvantaged by living in rural areas.

- This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Kris Lewis by ensuring that any student who is interested in pursuing higher education has the opportunity to do so.
- Any high school senior in Oregon who has at least a 2.5 GPA and diverse extracurricular experience (athletics, band, drama, clubs, volunteering, etc.) may apply for this scholarship, but applicants from rural areas are preferred.
