Scholarship Information & Application

The ONLC Scholarship Committee provides financial assistance in the form of partial scholarships for nonprofit leaders to attend the Oregon Nonprofit Leaders Conference. Professional and educational opportunities are critical to nonprofit organizations, big and small, and our scholarship committee aims to open the doors of our conference with partial scholarships to those who may be unable to afford the full conference price.

The 2020 Scholarship Application will be contained within the registration process and will be available February 24, 2020.  The deadline for scholarship requests is Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 5pm.

Here are some important details to keep in mind!
