Annual Recognition of Advocacy & Service

Now Accepting Applicants from Clatsop & Tillamook Counties

For over 20 years, FosterClub has had the privilege of working with outstanding youth from all across the country.

The FosterClub Outstanding Young Leader Scholarship Award is an annual recognition program that celebrates the brilliance & resilience of young people who have experienced foster care. This award uplifts young people who make a difference in their communities & counters negative beliefs about young people in/from foster care. 

In 2021, we are doing something different with our Outstanding Young Leader Award... we are giving away over $16,000 in scholarships! 

In order to maximize the scholarship dollars, we will distribute $600 scholarships to support the educational and training goals of awardees. 


How do I apply?

The application is ONLY open for Clatsop & Tillamook County, OR youth. 


Who is eligible?

Young people must be aged 17 to 26 years old and must have spent some time in foster care and/or kinship/relative care in the United States, including adoption, reunification, or the juvenile justice system.

We are looking to celebrate and recognize young people who are engaged in local, state or national community service and/or advocacy.

This could include activities such as youth boards, advisory committees, volunteering, and service leadership.

What do you receive?

  • $600 to support your educational & training goals, paid to your college or training program
