Harrington Family Foundation/Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship

Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship The Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship is a renewable four-year collegiate scholarship program for Oregon high school seniors who are emerging leaders, and plan to attend an Oregon trade school, college or university. The program is designed to find and encourage students in the state of Oregon who have shown a take-charge ability in their community, but may need financial help reaching their potential. In addition to the scholarship, each recipient will have a board of mentors available to them throughout and following their schooling to help guide their path to a successful career and future. By helping to open doors in the business sector, these emerging leaders will remain planted and invested in the state of Oregon. This is a need-based scholarship with criteria focusing on an individual's involvement in his or her community, rather than academic or athletic performance. Four scholarships will be issued for the 2017/18 academic year. Each scholarship is worth $2,500 per year for a total commitment of $10,000 per student. Scholarship valid only at an accredited Oregon trade school, college or university. Application deadline is March 31, 2017. Apply online: harringtonfamilyfoundation.slideroom.com Background For the past decade, the Harrington Family Foundation (HFF) has raised more than $1.8M for Oregon students, led by former University of Oregon and NFL quarterback, Joey Harrington. Joey was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and feels a vital connection to the state that has provided him many opportunities. It is the place he and his wife, Emily, have chosen to grow their family post-NFL, and remain close to those who helped in his success. Joey recognizes leaders do not only exist on the athletic field, or in front of a television camera, and believes investing in dedicated Oregon college students ultimately invests in the good of Oregon.
