Apply for Beat the Odds
Our Beat the Odds Scholarship program was started in 2007 to emphasize the critical role that education plays in helping students meet challenges and land on a path to success. The program is a partnership between Stand for Children Oregon and The Renaissance Foundation. The Beat the Odds Scholarship is a $4,000 scholarship, renewable for up to four years, for students who are overcoming adversity and succeeding in school. We are now accepting scholarship applications from public high school students in Lane County, class of 2021. The statewide application for students in the class of 2022 will be posted in May.
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 may be asked to speak at these events.
We are currently accepting applications for students in Lane County's Class of 2021!
