Portland Alumni Club
Bridging the scholarship gap for Buckeyes from Portland, Oregon

The Ohio State Alumni Club of Portland, Oregon is proud to assist local students with the dream of attending The Ohio State University.


Our club fundraises annually to provide scholarship support to three worthy students each year, so they can attend our alma mater in Columbus, Ohio and fulfill their Buckeye dreams. Over the past five years, we have awarded more than $10,000 in scholarship funds and we look forward to helping more students continue the tradition of excellence at Ohio State.


Our club needs your help to meet the growing demand for scholarship dollars from our highly qualified applicant pool.


As a result of this population increase, there has been a significant rise in the number of scholarship applications from local students who are both academically accomplished and in significant financial need.


The applicants in our pool are bright, gifted students with a promising future. They apply for our club’s scholarship because The Ohio State University is their first-choice college, and we want them to enroll. If we are not able to increase the number of student scholarships we give, these outstanding scholars may choose to enroll elsewhere.


To best serve our ever-growing population of high-quality academic scholarship-seekers, we ask donors and supporters to consider giving to the Ohio State Alumni Club of Oregon Scholarship Fund.


Your gift will help us send more promising students from the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington metro areas to the greatest school in the country — The Ohio State University. Your generosity will ensure that our alma mater continues to build its rankings and reputation for academic excellence and innovation by attracting the best and brightest students from our part of the country.
