Viking Scholars

Viking Scholars is a reception typically held each spring to recognize high-achieving high school juniors from Oregon on Portland State’s campus and honor their hard work and the commitment of their teachers, counselors, mentors, and communities. We were unable to celebrate high school juniors last spring due to COVID-19 restrictions so we are honoring them as seniors this fall on November 16, 2020 as part of our virtual Preview Day.

We invite high school counselors from across Oregon to nominate high-achieving juniors to attend Viking Scholars. Students who attend will be awarded up to $3,000 in scholarships to be applied toward their first year at Portland State University in fall 2021. Students who also enroll in the Honors College will be awarded an additional annual $3,000 scholarship.

A PSU Viking Scholar is a high school senior who has achieved academic success. They are not afraid of the hard work it takes. They are driven, bold, and determined to succeed. We ask our local high school counselors to help us identify students who they think are potential Viking Scholars, share this page with them or give them this invitation. RSVP is required.
