The Oregon Consular Corps Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) Oregon nonprofit corporation established to provide scholarships for junior and senior students in international studies related disciplines at participating Oregon universities and colleges. Presently, ten $2500 scholarships are awarded annually to meritorious students at Lewis & Clark College, Oregon State University, Portland State University, University of Oregon and University of Portland. Scholarship funds are dispersed to the student’s college account and may be applied to cover the cost of tuition and/or travel expenses associated with approved study abroad or international internship activities.
Beyond annual scholarships, the goal of the fund is to build a fund to support scholarships into the future for an expanded student population. The principal sources of funding come from the annual Celebrate Trade gala sponsored by partners from state and local government and businesses, and from charitable gifts to the endowment. Contributions to the fund may be deductible.
