Many COVID High School graduates of 2020 completed their senior year at home.  During this unprecedented confusion, many seniors had no communication with their Career / College Counselor to assist them in their planning for their educational goals.  Unfortunately, this situation resulted in many students not receiving information for applying for the Oregon Promise Grant before the graduation deadline.  Due to COVID difficulties, this lack of communication is having dire consequences for many graduates.  This imperative grant helps young adults in Oregon receive financial assistance  to start their higher education.   Now that these seniors are applying to their community college for the 2020 / 2021 school year, many COVID seniors are finding out that it is too late for their grant.   Many young Oregon adults missed this deadline due to the COVID confusion, and many are now unable to financially afford to begin their college education.  This promise from Oregon was intended to benefit our young adults and the society as a whole.  Please help us get the grant reopened for these Seniors, and ask the state to please hold to their promise.  Please help many of these young adults begin their higher education, some the first in their families to do so.  Please join us in asking Oregon to put the need to invest in the future of our Oregon youth, above the usual regulations, within these very unusual circumstances.  So many seniors are now faced with not being able to attend college and missing the chance to better their future.  Let's help these COVID seniors by taking a moment to show your support and asking the State of Oregon Grants Administration to reconsider their position to close this opportunity to Oregon seniors who graduated under such a confusing time in our history.  Let's stand to ask for this promise to be kept for the future of Oregon.
