Barbara Leppe Scholarship Fund

A Scholarship Fund offered through Central Oregon Community College. In 2008 the foundation established a permanent endowment of $20,000 to be awarded annually. The foundation receives applications through the Beat the Odds program sponsored by the Oregon non-profit Stand for Children, and considers young women candidates from rural Oregon communities. The scholarship criteria is contingent upon acceptance to a two or four-year institution. Funds are divided equally over the fall, winter, and spring terms (or fall and spring if the school runs on semesters) and are disbursed at the beginning of each term directly to the school. Recipients are required to enroll for and complete at least twelve credit hours (or nine if their school runs on semesters) each term, remain in good academic standing and maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. An annual 1-page narrative of the college experience is required for Board review, and if all criteria is successfully met, the scholarship is renewable for up to three additional years with a potential of $20,000. .
