Our program is a scholarship/student support program with a special focus on recruiting individuals from historically underrepresented groups to the teaching profession. The program is a partnership between PCC, Portland State University, Portland Public Schools (PPS), and Beaverton School District (BSD), and offers students who are committed to becoming teachers a supported pathway to earn their degrees starting at PCC and finishing at PSU.

Since the scholarship only covers tuition, your gift assists us in providing PCC students with stipends to help cover the cost of books and other curriculum materials, and be able to offer small emergency grants to students. You can help support the development of more teachers for our local communities who will be strong advocates for equity in education.

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor and the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund, the first $1,000 in gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

Join us as we work to raise $1,500 for the Teacher Scholarship Program on Big Give Day by making a gift now! Be sure to encourage your friends to do the same by sharing Big Give Day on social media using the hashtag #PCCBigGiveDay.
