Get GREAT board training that will impact your district’s student learning and receive money for student scholarships!
Sound too good to be true? The Oregon School Boards Association invites boards (including K-12, community colleges and education service districts) to submit your applications for the Diane Efseaff Memorial Scholarship Program (DEMSP). OSBA is looking for districts to participate in this 2020-21 Diane Efseaff Memorial Scholarship Program. Selected districts who complete all four parts of the program outlined below will receive either $2,500 or $5,000 of scholarship money for their student(s).
In honor of our longtime colleague, OSBA is renaming the Promise Scholarship Program as the Diane Efseaff Memorial Scholarship Program. Diane passed away March 25, 2019, after more than 23 years of exemplary service to school boards and students through her work in OSBA’s Communication Services department.
For additional information contact Janet Avila-Medina, Board Development Specialist, at (800) 578-6722 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The eligible board development period runs from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
The board is required to submit theapplicationto OSBA by July 1, 2020. The completed application becomes the board's preliminary plan for meeting the DEMSP requirements. Selected school districts will be notified by August 3, 2020.
OSBA will award the scholarship money upon completion of the board’s DEMSP.
Upon receipt of the money each board becomes solely responsible for the selection of student(s) and distribution of the scholarship money. OSBA will request media releases concerning the final selection of the student scholarship recipient(s).
