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 $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.
