The Branch awards at least one scholarship each year to a non-traditional female student currently enrolled at Clackamas Community College. These are often single mothers who wish to return to school and improve both their own lives and those of their children. To date, they have all gone on to four-year colleges to complete their degrees.

Members provide encouragement as well as financial help. The generous donations of our members to the Scholarship Fund make the journeys of these brave women a bit easier.

Donations to the Education and Scholarship (E&S) Fund that exceed $20.00 are tax deductible. Contributions may be made by check payable to LOAAUW E&S Fund and mailed to PO Box 416, Marylhurst, OR 97036. Alternatively, simply click on the “Donate” button found above and pay by credit card online. It’s easy to participate in this worthy program.

Our first recipient of the scholarship will be announced April 1, 2019. Our recipients will hold student membership in our branch for their year. We look forward to seeing these students at meetings and/or events as they have available time. Thank you for being part of the success you help make possible! You make a difference!
