OACRAO Scholarship History

Since the start of the scholarship in 1997, OACRAO has awarded nearly $50,000 to hardworking individuals throughout the state. To keep funds alive, the organization collects private donations and hosts a silent auction each year at the annual conference. This year, the Scholarship Committee welcomes monetary donations from those outside of the organization, as well as those who already participate at their institutions. This is a great way to show your support to those making a difference in our hometowns.

In advance, we would like to thank you for your contribution. You have made a difference and it is greatly appreciated. If you would like to read more about the OACRAO scholarship history or review past recipients, this information is available online.
