The Greater Ukiah Chamber of Commerce is requesting contributions from community individuals and
businesses for our new “Greater Ukiah Chamber of Commerce Education Scholarship” .
This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a local High School Senior who demonstrates an entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to our local business community and may be awarded for subsequent years.
The recipient of this award must reside within the Ukiah Valley area and intend to continue
their education at a trade school, community or four‐year college or university. Considerations will be
given to passion for chosen career path, experience and planning for career path
and dedication to community.
Through the Ukiah Foundation for Commerce and Education, the Greater Ukiah Chamber of
Commerce would like to offer this scholarship each year with plans to grow in partnership
with local business contributions.
2017 Scholarship Recipient, Julie BrownHello my name is Julie Brown and I was the 2017 scholarship recipient. I am just about to start my sophomore year at Chico State and my first year went by in the blink of an eye. I became extremely involved for a freshman I was on one of Chico States Animal Science Acedemic Quadrathlon teams, I am the Membership Chair for our colleges Young Cattlemen’s Association, I joined Sigma Alpha an Agricultural Business Sorority, and have obtained a job at the Chico State Beef Unit. None of this would have been possible without the help of the Ukiah Greater Chamber of Commerce.
