Oroville High School Dollar for Scholars

  

Why is OSF so important?

   Rising costs are closing doors to higher education for many individuals. Through OSF, we have the opportunity to make a strong, collective statement about the importance of education after high school. We can provide both encouragement and financial support for our local students.

How are funds for local awards provided?

   Funds come from the generous support of individuals, business, and service organizations as well as a variety of fundraising events. For those who wish to establish endowed scholarships, Oroville Scholarship Foundation may be named as a beneficiary in wills, insurance policies or receive gifts of property.

Who may apply?

  Graduating Oroville High School seniors and former OHS graduates who have completed at least 1 year of college. Scholarships may be for two year institutions, four year institutions, vocational and technical colleges.

How are local scholarships awarded?

   Applications are scored and awarded by a committee of impartial OSF volunteers. Applicants receive points for academic record, school activities, community service and work experience. In this way, the selection process is objective and nondiscriminatory.

 

 Oroville Scholarship Foundation wishes to thank everyone for their donations & support.
