Lois A. and Oscar F. Mock Scholarship For more than three decades Lois Mock was a dedicated member of the staff at Portland State University, serving four Deans in what was then called the School of Fine and Performing Arts before retiring in 1992. Both she and her late husband Oscar were avid fans of the arts. She says Oscar was an especially enthusiastic supporter, "literally forgetting to breathe during a particular good performance." Long a fan of the Peter Britt Festival founded by John Trudeau, in his later years Oscar also grew to enjoy Portland Taiko. Working so closely for many years with students, Ms. Mock said she makes this generous gift because she knows there is great need. Ms. Mock has established an endowment that provides a $1000 scholarship each year on a rotational basis to each of the College of the Arts four Schools. While her endowment grows, Ms. Mock has also been providing an additional scholarship to each of the four schools for a total of five scholarship awards each year. For detailed information on the year in which this scholarship is offered, contact the Office of the Dean of the Arts.
