The Oregon Community Leadership Scholarship is a renewable four-year collegiate scholarship program eligible for current Oregon high school seniors (GED are also eligible) 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. This is a need-based scholarship with criteria focusing on an individual’s involvement in their community, rather than academic or athletic performance.
Established in 2002 by former University of Oregon and NFL quarterback, Joey Harrington, the Harrington Family Foundation (HFF) has raised more than $2M for students across the state of Oregon. HFF cultivates the next generation of leaders in the state of Oregon by providing students need-based leadership scholarships, mentorship support, and an active community network. The scholarship also provides each student key mentorship support: personalized access to a board of 11 influential leaders/mentors in the community.
