Every year the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame awards up to six $3,000 scholarships to outstanding Oregon student athletes who will be attending Oregon colleges. These worthy scholarship recipients are routinely straight-A students with multiple All-League and All-State designations and other leadership attributes. Typically they go on to successful careers in education, engineering, business and other pursuits. There are printable forms that will give you more eligibility information and requirements.

The Joy of Sport Program
The Oregon Sports Hall of Fame and Museum launched the Joy of Sport Program during the 1999-2000 school year and qualifying schools and programs have enthusiastically received the program. Many schools have limited budgets for activities outside of the classroom and this is especially true for schools serving low-income families. Hundreds of children who might not otherwise be able to visit the hall of Fame have been able to come due to the generosity of corporate and individual donors.
If you are interested in learning more about the Joy of Sport Program and how you can sponsor a school or youth group, please contact us. You can see many of the fun things the Kids can enjoy by viewing our Youth page.
