Service Update

Future Connect is still here. We are working to support our current PCC students taking college courses. And we are continuing to work with our new applicants to prepare for fall 2022 and beyond. For resources and updates, please visit PCC’s COVID-19 site.


Future Connect is a scholarship and support program for students who identify as first-generation or low-income. We focus on eliminating barriers to college, and provide students with on-going support throughout their time at PCC.

Through scholarship money, career guidance, and personalized advising, Future Connect helps students build pathways to their futures.

Check out the Future Connect brochure, and for Spanish-speakers, check out our flyer in Spanish. Also, please meet our program staff.

High school students

College can be challenging, and we’re here to help. Future Connect provides on-going financial and academic support to help you pay for college and excel in your classes.


School and community partners

Helping high school students transition to college takes teamwork, and we’re part of that team. Future Connect provides outreach to your high school or organization, and helps with college access.



Make a contribution through the PCC Foundation and double your support for Future Connect students! You’ll help us meet the matching challenge from the City of Portland. Thank you.
