90 years supporting our community

Since 1930, the OSU Folk Club Thrift Shop Foundation has awarded scholarships benefiting students attending Oregon State University. Last year, these scholarships totaled nearly $60,000 thanks to the generosity and support of our community!

Folk Club scholarships are made possible by proceeds from the OSU Folk Club Thrift Shop and by donations from individuals or organizations. Contact us to learn more about how your donations can make an impact on local students.

Scholarship applications are open!

OSU Folk Club/Thrift Shop Scholarship provides two different scholarships:

  • The High School Scholarship is for seniors graduating from a Benton County high school or who live in Benton County. They must plan to attend OSU full-time or have full-time dual enrollment in the Degree Partnership Program of LBCC and OSU with at least 6 credits per term at OSU in the next academic year. The principal criterion for this award is academic merit.
  • The Current or Returning Undergraduate Scholarship is for Oregon resident undergraduates enrolled at Oregon State University with at least 6 credits per term in the academic year 2023-24 and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.The primary criteria are financial need and academic achievement.
