Previous year scholarship recipients are eligible to reapply but must submit a new application. Both two-year and four-year scholarships are available.
Scholarship applications will be reviewed by an OLCF committee and recipients selected will be notified be email in June of this year, as well as be highlighted in the July edition of OLC NEWS.
Proceeds (which totaled more than $29,000) from the recent OLCF auction held at the 82nd Annual Oregon Logging Conference in February have been added to the scholarship fund. A special thank you to all donors and bidders at this year's auction!
THE OLCF is a 501(c)3 charitable foundation which awards scholarships ranging from $750 to $3,000 annually. The scholarships are sent directly to the recipient's school for deposit into the student's account, to help cover costs of tuition and books. All donations to OLCF are tax deductible. The OLCF tax ID # is 45-5045072.
