Establish a scholarship

A scholarship as enduring as our students

When you choose to endow a scholarship, you are planting a seed that will grow in perpetuity. As long as Portland Community College exists, so will your support of its students. A gift of $25,000*, invested permanently, will make scholarship awards to deserving and ambitious students year after year.

Your endowment may take time to mature, but the needs of our students don’t wait. Many donors choose to support students today with an additional annual scholarship while your endowed gift builds for the students of tomorrow.

Your impact today

An annual scholarship with limited criteria can be established for $5,000**, and are renewable year to year. Scholarship award amounts and number of students you’d like to support can be considered when establishing your scholarship gift.

Honor someone special with the gift of opportunity

Growing a student’s future through the gift of education is a profound way to honor someone important in your life. A memorial or honorary named scholarship can be established with a gift of $2,500, to be awarded for a single general scholarship.

Where your passions meet our students

Our scholarships are as varied as our students and our programs! From single parents to foster youth, low-income to first-generation college students, a future nurse, welder, pilot or mathematics professor – our student’s futures are made brighter by your support. Let’s talk about the journey you want to pave the way for.
