Since Southwestern Oregon Community College opened its doors in 1961 with 266 students, more than one-hundred thousand students have attended the college. One out of every six adults in the college district takes a class at Southwestern each year. Southwestern has had a positive impact on almost every family in the college district. We all know education is expensive, and numerous scholarships are one way we help to make it affordable. Each year, the Foundation in partnership with the College, administrators and extensive scholarship program provides $800,000 annually in direct assistance and tuition waivers to students attending Southwestern.
Thanks to the continuous support of our generous donors, the Southwestern Foundation was able to award over 120 students $120,000 in scholarships.
