Apply for Beat the Odds

The Beat the Odds Scholarship program began in 2007 to celebrate students who overcome tremendous obstacles along their paths to graduation day.

“If you have a lot of hardships, then take those and turn them into opportunities. If you’re positive, then you’ll have a better outlook on life; you’ll have a better outlook on education; you’ll have a better outlook on every other aspect of your life.”

-Keyshawn Jackson, 2018 Beat the Odds Scholar

The Beat the Odds Scholarship is for students who will feel empowered by telling their story. Recipients are filmed for a biographical video and participate in all related publicity. Stand for Children hosts a fundraising luncheon in Portland each year, and a reception in Eugene. Beat the Odds recipients accept their scholarships and speak at these events.

We are currently accepting applications for Lane County Beat the Odds.
