Giving: Supporting Excellence in Education
Scholarships & Areas of Giving
Oregon Scholars Fund
The Oregon Scholars Fund provides need-based financial aid for students from Oregon who are attending one of The Alliance’s member colleges and universities. It is a pooled scholarship fund supported by businesses, foundations and individuals who believe in investing in the success of students. Gifts, in a variety of sizes, expand access to the quality educational opportunities provided by Oregon’s private, not-for-profit colleges and universities.
Matched College Savings Program
Income-eligible students attending a member institution have their custodial savings matched 5:1 by federal, state, and Alliance funds in a program that features financial planning, personal development and career and educational mentoring.
Named scholarships, funded by corporations, foundations, or individuals, support students based on their own selected criteria. The Alliance’s named scholarship program allows a corporation, foundation, or individual to have one or more students at each of The Alliance’s member institutions selected as recipients of their scholarship.
Area of Greatest Need
Investment in private higher education yields high returns. Our graduates, equipped with professional skills and honed capacities to reason, communicate and solve problems, provide the leadership and creativity that current business and community leaders hail as the hope and promise for continuing leadership in an evolving and challenging world.
