What cool things are we doing at Portland State? How can YOU get involved? 

A group of international students

Support our programs!
Please donate to whichever ones speak to you!

Many of our donors have experienced the transformational power of international exchange first-hand and are dedicated to helping others have the same meaningful opportunities. To find out all the ways you could make a difference, please take a look at our Foundation giving page https://www.psuf.org/office-international-affairs

Your monthly, annual or one-time contribution provides the Office of International Affairs with the flexibility to pursue meaningful opportunities and support those expenses not funded by PSU resources.

Your gift may help:

  • Provide scholarships for PSU students to study abroad
  • Provide emergency assistance to international students studying at PSU
  • Support faculty to teach or research abroad, and to develop international curriculum
  • Enhance international programs and partnerships

We invite those with an interest in international affairs to support those of our programs that speak to them. Your contributions support PSU's mission to internationalize our campus, to help our students become global citizens, and to raise Portland State University’s ability to excel as a globally-recognized institution. Thank you for your support!
