Funding Scholarships

Support scholarship fundingJosephine County Educational Fund is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that provides scholarships and grants to students in partner schools throughout Southern Oregon. It is our goal to help local students achieve their dreams of higher education by providing financial assistance through scholarships and book grants.

Without the support from people like you, we would not be able to meet our goal. We work with individuals, businesses and organizations that have the same desire we do in seeing our local youth succeed.

How you can help

You can make donations to scholarships that are already in place, or to a general fund where we choose how they will be disbursed. Or, you can set up a new scholarship.

Student Profile

Testimonial: [In the beginning, I had nothing. Thanks for the $2,500 GEAR UP scholarship grant from the Oregon Community Fund that JCEF administers. With the renewable Gilmore Scholarship ($5,000 annually for 4 years), College Dreams’ IDA program and the W. Irving Baldini local scholarship, I have something that I can use to better my future. I hope to make a difference in other people’s lives through my planned career in criminal justice.]
