Beat the Odds Scholarship Program
The Beat the Odds Scholarship Awards Program is designed to highlight the incredible potential of Oregon’s young people as well as the challenges which prevent too many of them from succeeding. Each fall, Stand for Children Leadership Center awards three $10,000 scholarships to college-bound Oregon public high school seniors who have "Beat the Odds" by succeeding in school despite daunting obstacles.
To be eligible for a scholarship, students must:
- Be enrolled in a public high school in Oregon, on track to graduate in June of the coming year
- Have at least a 3.0 grade point average showing marked effort, improvement or success
- Have succeeded in spite of hardships such as poverty, disability, homelessness or personal tragedy
- Have volunteered or participated in activities that are helpful to others
- Have a demonstrated financial need
