Beat the Odds 2021

Join us virtually on November 16 at 5:00 pm to hear the stories of this year's Beat the Odds scholars and learn about what you can do to support Stand's work.

Our Mission

Stand is focused on ensuring all students receive a high quality, relevant education, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped because of their skin color, zip code, first language, or disability. Join us in standing up for families in your community.

Join us in the fight.

Beat the Odds

Each year, Stand awards $16,000 college scholarships to Oregon public high school seniors who have Beat the Odds. These students have overcome obstacles on their path to graduation thanks to great educators & school programs.

Meet one of our 2021 scholars, Luis.
