Offered by Black United Fund of Oregon
Are you an incoming or current high school student of Black/African descent who resides in the Portland metro area? If so, you may be eligible for the Charles Jordan Legacy Community Service Scholarship! Each year, the scholarship awards $1,000 each to multiple high school students of Black/African descent who are residing in Multnomah, Clackamas, Columbia, Washington, or Yamhill County in Oregon, or in Clark or Skamania County in Washington. Applicants should also have a solid belief in the importance of service and a history of service in their community, with a minimum of 20 hours of community service performed each calendar year. The scholarship was named in honor of Charles Jordan, Portland’s first African-American City Commissioner who made “commitment to youth and education” a priority during his career in public service.
