NEW APPLICATIONS are available for 2021-2022. We will not be able to accept outdated applications as a few requirements may have changed.
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"
