Scholarship Selection Committee

OSAC administers hundreds of scholarships each year that help students pay for college. The Internal Selection Committee is responsible for reviewing and scoring student applications, which are then passed along for final awarding decisions. OSAC needs volunteers to serve on this selection committee each year (March to July) and help us identify deserving students. Read the full position description for more information.

Commitment: OSAC has flexible scheduling for volunteers during traditional work hours, but we do ask that you commit to at least four meetings per season. Training for selection committee members involves an initial training session (1-2 hours) or an annual update training for returning members. All application reviewing must be done at the OSAC office in Eugene.

Applying: Complete the OSAC volunteer application, which includes a criminal background check form. Drop off or mail your completed application to our office.
