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 Oregon, Class of 2022!
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 fundraising events in Portland and Eugene each year. Beat the Odds recipients accept their scholarships and may be asked to speak at these events.
We are currently accepting applications for students in Oregon’s Class of 2022. The deadline for applications will be September 15th 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
- The Elks National Foundation will award 500 four-year scholarships to the highest-rated applicants in the 2022 competition.
- Male and female students compete separately.
- Ranging from $1,000 per year to $12,500 per year, Most Valuable Student scholarships are for students pursuing a four-year degree, on a full-time basis (minimum of 12 semester hours), in a U.S. college or university. All scholarships are in the form of certificates of award conditional upon the full-time enrollment of the winner in an accredited U.S. college or university.
- The Chicago office of the Elks National Foundation will announce the 500 national winners in late April, 2022. (Many local Lodges, districts and state Elks associations award their own scholarships through this program. These scholarships are not to be confused with the 500 Elks National Foundation Most Valuable Student Scholarships.)
The 20 Top Finalists traditionally* participate in an all expenses paid Leadership Weekend in Chicago during which they’ll interview with the national judges. These 20 Finalists will be vying for two first-place awards of $50,000; two second-place awards of $40,000; and two third-place awards of $30,000. The remaining 14 finalists will receive awards of $20,000. The 480 runners-up will receive fifth-place scholarships of $4,000.
*The plan to come together in-person is tentative. However, participation in either an in-person or virtual Leadership Weekend is required to be eligible for the top awards.
