Benson Polytechnic High School Alumni Association

Scholarship Fund

Donations are handled by The Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) who invests, administers and distributes the funds.

Each year, the interest income is available for scholarship awards to graduating seniors selected by a panel of Benson teachers.  The award monies go directly to their chosen school as tuition.

As the Reunion Scholarship Fund has grown in size, the awards have increased substantially.  While 1991 saw two scholarships awarded for $250 each, 2022 saw $6,000 awarded to four recipients.

If you would like to donate by check:

The Oregon Community Foundation

Please note that there is a $25 minimum for donations made online or by check.
