After much consideration, the Foundation has decided to take a pause in granting NEW scholarships for 2022 graduates. We apologize for those who intended to apply this year. We hope to return to accepting high school graduates for 2023.
The Larry K. Sharpf Foundation is committed to assist our current students in the pursuit of their college dreams. Please apply for your scholarship by May 1, 2022. Applications are online to download. Please reach out with any questions.
We are saddened to announce the passing of Larry K. Sharpf on February 1, 2021.
The Foundation continues his lasting legacy. Please view his Memorial site Forevermissed.com/LKS.
Thank you for keeping his "gift" alive.
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.
Listen to a few words from our founder to our high school applicants.
"Thank you so much for awarding me the educational scholarship. - Without this scholarship, it would have been very hard for me to actually go to school, and I probably would have had to take out many loans. With your gift however, I don't have to stress about it and I will be more able to actually focus on my education."
~2019, 2020 Award Recipient - Lebanon High School
"Words cannot express the gratitude I feel. Being awarded the LKS Scholarship is the highlight of my academic career."
~2020 Award Recipient - Scio High School
"I'm honored to be one of your picks for the first year of this scholarship. I am proud to be a part of the first group of people to continue in your legacy of honor and altruism"
