Scholarship Program

The OAN has established the Oregon Nurseries Foundation to manage funds contributed by OAN members for the purpose of awarding scholarships to deserving students preparing for a career in ornamental horticulture and related fields. The ONF is a separate nonprofit foundation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation is governed by a five member Board of Trustees who are members of the OAN. The Board also includes an OAN staff liaison, who does not have voting powers. The ONF is located at the OAN's office.
