Because SOU Pre-College Youth Programs are self-supporting, we depend upon grants, tuition fees, and private donations to operate. These donations help us provide the enrichment classes, academic competitions and summer camps that serve more than 5,000 students annually.

Many of the students who benefit most from our programs need financial assistance. Our tuition assistance fund depends solely upon donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations. This past year, we awarded tuition assistance to almost 800 students in southern Oregon, providing meaningful experiences to students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds—experiences in which they learn, discover, and see new things in the world.

Make a difference in the educational lives of students by making a donation to the Pre-College & Youth Programs. Your donation enables us to offer these quality educational opportunities to students regardless of their family's income.
