Student Scholarship Evaluation Committee

Each year, the Black United Fund of Oregon (BUF) awards scholarships to BIPOC students within our community as they aim to pursue higher education. Last year alone, approximately $650,000 was awarded to over 30 high school graduates! As part of the selection process, students must submit their applications to be evaluated by a committee before being invited to interview. This committee relies heavily on the service and dedication from volunteers like you!

As a member of the Scholarship Evaluation Committee, you will support the selection of student scholars. Utilizing Foundant, an online scholarship management system, completed application packets will be available for your review; committee members will be responsible for providing feedback for each applicant back to the team. Volunteers may also have the opportunity to conduct interviews with applicants, as well.

Time Commitment: the average estimated time required for this volunteer opportunity is 20 to 30 hours over the course of a few months, usually March and April. A few online meetings will be required for participation, including:

  • Post-application review and interview selection meeting (held via Zoom)
  • Foundant Training (also provided in written/video format)
  • If asked to participate, student applicant interviews (you will likely conduct several, but not all interviews)
