The Oregon Community Leadership Scholarship is a renewable four-year collegiate scholarship program eligible for current Oregon high school seniors who are emerging leaders, and plan to attend an Oregon trade school, college or university. The program is intended to facilitate the growth of promising leaders in the state of Oregon by developing the skills needed to flourish their local communities. 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 are issued each spring, generally the first week of May. Each scholarship is worth $4,000 per year for a total commitment of $16,000 per student in perpetuity. There are 16 enrolled students in the program, and 8 alumni of the program. Application for 2020 academic year closes on March 6, 2020 at 11:59PM.
