The Oregon Consular Corps International Studies Scholarships are intended to assist highly qualified upper division students in Oregon public universities who are planning a career in international relations or affairs. Scholarship recipients will be honored at the Oregon Consular Corps annual dinner. Consul members of the Oregon Consular Corps (OCC) are committed to improved relations, communications, understanding, and trade between nations, peoples, and regions of the world. Oregon public universities are poorly funded and fewer young people in Oregon have the opportunity to pursue their educational and career dreams. Oregon Consular Corps members remember their own educational dreams and objectives and want more students in Oregon to have the opportunity to build a better world and better lives for themselves and for others.
Oregon has had Consular Services for over a century, with Consular representatives stationed in Portland, for the most part, having jurisdiction extending throughout the western United States from Portland. Oregon Consular Corps members represent Austria, Barbados, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Iceland, Italy, Ivory Coast, Japan, Korea, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Thailand, and the United Kingdom.
