The Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen are deeply committed to encouraging our local young men and women to become active participants in the ranching and farming industry. The scholarships are designed to encourage graduating seniors to major in a curriculum related to Agriculture. The amount of the scholarship is determined by the proceeds of the previous years' sale of our Brand Quilt tickets, and the number of applicants

     To qualify, the applicant must be a graduating senior from a Plumas or Sierra County High School, be from a ranching family or if not from a ranching family they must be enrolled in an agricultural course of study, and meet a variety of qualifications and requirements. Scholarship recipients from the previous year, who are continuing their studies, may also apply for a second year scholarship. 
    Scholarship applications are available at all Plumas-Sierra High Schools. Applications due date is no later than April 17, 2017.  All applicants must also appear for a personal interview with the Scholarship Committee. The money is available to the recipients upon proof of their college or trade school registration.
