Jack Watson Memorial Scholarship

Special update on Aug. 14:

Rick has a special incentive for those supporting the scholarship fund in Jack’s name. Everyone who makes a gift before October 1 will be put in a drawing for Jack’s tickets to the University of Oregon vs. University of Washington football game on Oct. 18. (Yes, if you’ve already donated, you are in!) Every gift matters and will help fund scholarships for the University of Oregon Theatre Arts Department's biennial London trip. Even if you can’t attend the game, you must know someone who would love to go! Please pass the word and make your donation now!

If your gift can be eligible for an employer match, you can give directly to the University of Oregon Theatre Arts Department in Jack's name and it will go to this fund. Use the "Gift Instructions" box if giving online.

We will adjust the goal as gifts come in to the University and report here and on FB.

When we reach our goal, the fund should provide a $1,500 to $2,000 scholarship for each trip. (This takes the modest processing fees into account for the final fund, which we hope will be $25,000.)
