WHY A SCHOLARSHIP?
People who come to the Portland area from other countries are eager to enter the workforce. For many, it's a challenge to earn a college degree -- not because they lack the will, but because they can't afford the costs.
Studies show that immigrants who earn degrees are better able to provide for themselves and their families and to contribute to society.
The Newcomer Scholarship is intended to help Portland-area immigrants earn their degrees.
