Educator Recognition Award

Linfield values the dedication, hard work and invisible labor that educators, many of which are Linfield alumni, invest in student development. Beginning fall 2023, the Educator Recognition Award is granted to first-year and transfer students starting their Linfield studies on the McMinnville Campus whose parent or spouse are current K-12 educators. We believe educators in all K-12 roles make impactful contributions in the lives of students and are uniquely positioned to help future Wildcats thrive at Linfield.

In appreciation of the educator commitment to students, Linfield will award an additional $1,000 scholarship renewable for four years while students meet satisfactory academic progress toward graduation.
