Who We Are

The LKS Foundation is a non profit organization established in 2018 by Larry K. Sharpf.  We offer graduating high school seniors, living in the State of Oregon, scholarships to continue their education at a state or private school, community college or trade school within the State of Oregon. Scholarship amount up to $20,000.00 for a 4 year institution is applicable to tuition, room and board only. Several will be awarded per year.  Amount awarded will vary per candidate, need and school chosen.  We aim to help students pursue their dream of getting an education.


We will also be awarding a few scholarships to final year Linfield College students based on need and debt accrued for their education expenses.
