OEI Annual Educational Award

Each spring the Office for Equity & Inclusion (OEI) will choose a local organization or club that exemplifies a commitment to educating our youth on matters involving discrimination, sexual assault or intimate partner violence. The OEI will donate these educational funds directly to the organization/club or through one of the group's fundraising events.

The current annual scholarship amount is $400.
