2016 Scholarship Awards

On May 25, Janus awarded 12 scholarships to youth in several of our programs. This is the 15th year of awarding scholarships that open the door to education for the youth we work with. For some youth that may mean enrolling in a technical training program, a community college, a 4-year university, even medical school. Since launching the fund in 2001, 73 scholarships have been awarded.

These scholarships are meant to fill in the gaps for students who are struggling to finance their education without financial support from their families. The 12 recipients will use the scholarships to help pay for tuition, books, rent and tools for an apprenticeship program. One youth is planning on using her scholarship towards finishing her BS degree at PSU so she can pursue a medical degree at OHSU. Another youth is enrolled at Mt. Hood Community College next fall to become a physical therapist. And a youth at MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility plans to purchase professional barber tools that will enable him to successfully transition to the community and secure employment when he is released from McLaren.

This year’s scholarship recipients are from various Janus programs including Insights Teen Parent Program, Cordero House, Bridge House, The Hope Partnership, Changes and Food Works. Congratulations to all of you!
