U.S. Bancorp donates to SOU's Honors College

The U.S. Bancorp Foundation has donated $12,500 to the Southern Oregon University Foundation to provide a named scholarship for the university's new Honors College.

U.S. Bank's educational grants are provided to innovative programs that help low-income and at-risk students succeed in school and prepare for post-secondary education, provide financial literacy training or offer effective mentoring programs.

The SOU Honors College offers students the opportunity to work closely with faculty in small classes and to build relationships with employers and community leaders through a personalized mentoring program. The Honors College will open in the fall, and is expected to grow to 100 students in four years.
