Oregon Music Hall of Fame (OMHOF) announced that applications for our college scholarship program are available again with a deadline of February 14, 2022. Each applicant should be a student studying music and graduating spring 2022 from an Oregon High School and continuing to college in the fall of 2022 with a major or minor in music.
