Volunteer Readers

Volunteer Scholarship Reader Opportunity

This 2017-18 academic year, the Lane Community Foundation will be awarding $800,000 in scholarships to our students.

We rely on a caring, dedicated team of individuals to help us review student applications. This is a meaningful volunteer opportunity and our readers truly enjoy the process.

All reviewers are required to attend one orientation & training session, in person, at Lane Community College's main campus located in Eugene, Oregon. Because of this requirement, volunteers are typically residents of Lane County. The orientation & traning sessions are generally held mid-March each year.

What To Expect

  • Review online applications from your home, on your own schedule!
  • Access online applications with PC or MAC computers.
  • Computers should be current. Volunteers will need to download Adobe Reader to access application documents (No cost version available on the internet).
  • Attend one 90-minute orientation and training session on Lane’s Main Campus held mid-March to early April.
  • Orientations provide instructions for using the online software and our review criteria.
  • Read approximately 40 applications.
  • Completing your review will take approximately 25-30 hours.
  • You will have approximately one month to complete your review.
