LeAnn Adam 

Director, National and Global Scholarships Advising

Make an Appointment with LeAnn

LeAnn is OSU's first full-time director for nationally competitive scholarships starting in June 2015. She is passionate about supporting the aspirations of all candidates: undergraduate, graduate, and alumni, and providing highly personalized advising.  When you meet with LeAnn, you will notice she asks a lot of questions: she likes advising appointments to be lively and interactive and she always hopes you’ll leave with things to think about that you’d never even considered. LeAnn is a graduate of the College Student Services Administration master’s program at OSU where she specialized in student development and success through engagement in nationally competitive scholarship applications. 

Before inaugurating the National and Global Scholarships Advising office at OSU, LeAnn was an education abroad and Fulbright Program advisor with OSU GO.  She has had a long career in International Education including positions in both the US and abroad. She was previously Coordinator of the Overseas Resource Center at Stanford University, Group Leader for educational travel programs in Cuba and Italy, and she earned her undergraduate degree and worked in International Programs at San Francisco State University. LeAnn intends to never stop learning or traveling. In her free time, she enjoys scuba diving, yoga, reading, drawing, writing, and spontaneous day trips with her daughter and Boston Terrier.

Becca Otto

Coordinator, National and Global Scholarships Advising

Make an appointment with Becca

Becca graduated from University of Portland with a BA in German studies and history where she also studied abroad in Salzburg, Austria during her sophomore year. Her international experience piqued an interest in global scholarships and opportunities, and she later went on to complete an English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) through the Fulbright Commission in St. Veit an der Glan, Austria. Before coming to OSU, Becca worked as a student navigator in the First Resort (student help) Center at Linn-Benton Community College. She brings a combination of experience with scholarships alongside a passion for supporting students in finding their way in college and beyond. She is excited to work with students throughout the entire scholarship application process and understands how rewarding and challenging it can be.

In her free time, Becca enjoys taking her Australian Shepherd on hikes, reading, drawing, or exploring in the mountains as often as she can.
