$217,300 in Scholarships Awarded to Lincoln County Graduates


This spring, 133 Lincoln County graduates will receive $217,300 in awards through the work of

the Foundation and its donors. The Lincoln County Foundation is a non-profit corporation

established to serve as an agency to particularly assist, encourage and promote the welfare and well-being of the youth of Lincoln County, Oregon.


It was created in 1965 by a group of Lincoln County citizens to provide a means through which gifts, bequests, property, or funds from any source may be placed in trust. In partnership with the high schools of Lincoln County School District, we offer seniors the ability to apply for scholarships that most often have been established in remembrance of dynamic individuals who contributed to the community throughout their lifetimes. We are particularly grateful to the counseling staffs and others who worked together with us to overcome the current difficulties of in person communication to get the task accomplished this year.


Since the usual Senior Awards ceremonies have needed to be altered, each school has developed created ways to continue this tradition, and we are proud to be part of these celebrations. For information regarding the work of the Foundation, please contact

Executive Director Jon Zagel at 541-270-1824.
