2014 PCC Future Connect Scholarship and College Support

future-connect-logoMetro area State Rep. Joe Gallegos had a nice guest opinion piece in the Oregonian about support for community college students, especially those who are first in their families to attend college.  The piece advocates a new bill proposed in the legislature to expand the Portland area’s Future Connect initiative throughout the state.  Future Connect is an initiative to eliminate barriers to attending college while providing on-going support to help students once they get there.

Students receive a minimum $500 per year for two years to help pay for college. They also receive critical college and career support.

Apply before March 3, 2014. You must apply to PCC first and use the ID number they provide.
