Scholarships are a form of aid (free money) to help you invest in your future. Portland State offers many scholarship choices for undergraduate, post baccalaureate and graduate students.

No matter what your level of education is, it's a good idea to apply for scholarships at the same time you apply for admission to PSU.

PSU has one scholarship awarding cycle each year.  The online scholarship applications become available in early October, and they are due the following: February 1st for undergraduates and March 31st for graduates.  Scholarships awarded in this process will be available to students the following academic year.
