About the Scholarship & Eligibility Requirements

The Leo Adler Foundation provides scholarships to graduates of North Powder High School and of all high schools in Baker County, Oregon. Applicants must also be residents of Baker County or the North Powder School District. Applicants who meet the residency requirement and receive a general equivalency diploma (GED) from a duly accredited institution in Oregon or appropriate homeschool certification may also apply. Recipients qualify for up to five years of scholarship awards. Scholarships may be applied consecutively over the five-year period, or recipients may elect to save part of their eligibility for a future program of study (i.e. graduate or doctoral studies). Under special circumstances, recipients may request a deferral and postpone the award.

Am I a first-time, renewal, or returning applicant?
If you received funding last year, you would be a “renewal applicant”. However, if you took a gap year/deferral, you would be considered a “returning applicant”.

Each year, we recognize people willing to work smart AND hard.

The Work Ethic Scholarship Program is about recognizing people who understand the importance of work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude. These are hardworking men and women who will keep the lights on, water running, and air flowing. These are people who show up early, stay late, and bust their asses day in and out. These are the people we want to reward.
