Our branch supported one Marylhurst University student each year for several years until the University’s recent closure. Many members had the opportunity to meet some of the student recipients and to cheer them on to completion of their degrees. Members celebrated the success of students who were single moms facing new challenges and who were re-entering college to pursue new careers. Members provided encouragement as well as financial help. Members’ generous donations to the Scholarship Fund made their journey a bit easier.

We have now entered into a new partnership. We have established a scholarship with Clackamas Community College and will continue to support students who meet our established eligibility criteria. Our Finance Vice Presidents have made it even easier for members who donate $20.00 or more to the Scholarship Fund to claim their contribution as a tax deductible expense on their federal and state tax returns. Contributions may be made by check payable to LOAAUW E&S Fund. Checks can be mailed to PO Box 416, Marylhurst, OR 97036. Alternatively, simply click on the “Donate” button found above and pay by credit cards online. It’s easy to participate in this worthy program.

You may also contact Catharine Hojem by phone: (541) 240-1291, or email at: for answers to questions you might have concerning our college scholarship. 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!
