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 mid-October, and they are due February 1st for both undergraduates and graduates.  Scholarships awarded in this process will be available to students the following academic year.
