Roundhouse Enrichment Experiences

The Roundhouse Foundation was established with a mission to encourage community enrichment and economic development through the arts in Central Oregon.  For this reason, The Roundhouse Foundation is offering scholarships to be distributed to middle and high school students in Sisters for enriching experiences. Sisters GRO manages this scholarship and oversees the application, recipient selection, and disbursement process.

Roundhouse Foundation Enrichment Experience Applications are accepted throughout the school year but must be received no later than 30 days prior to the experience activity, allowing time for processing and consideration. Summer experiences are encouraged, but applications for these activities must be submitted no later than the last day of the school year. No incomplete or late applications will be considered.  A selection comm
ittee of SHS staff, Sisters GRO board members, and Sisters community leaders will determine recipients and scholarship award amounts.
