Oregon's football coaches matching donations to help program for low-income students
Oregon’s football coaches will match donations of up to $250,000 toward a University of Oregon program that benefits low-income high school graduates from the state.
Students eligible for PathwayOregon receive full tuition, fees and advising support, and the university says 1,700 students have taken part in the program since the first class of Pathway students enrolled in 2008.
PathwayOregon is funded by federal, state and institutional money, UO said, on top of donations. The Ducks’ football coaches plan to match donations made before May 2 — the date of Oregon’s annual spring game — up to $250,000.
