About the OPC Scholarship
Each year, the OPC scholarship is available to children of full OPC members that are graduating from secondary school. They also must demonstrate excellence in academics, be involved in extra-curricular activities within their school, and contribute to their broader communities through volunteer work.
The scholarships are awarded and funded through the local OPC executive, who also review the applications.
