Annually, the Tigard Chamber awards scholarships to high school seniors to apply to college costs. These scholarships are open to seniors that are planning to attend a 4 year university, 2 year community college or those pursuing vocational and technical training opportunities. Currently we award between 4-6 $1,000 scholarships each year based on the generous contributions of Pride Disposal, Center Street Gold and Silver, Portland Community College, and 75+ Tigard Chamber Members and other sponsoring businesses.
These $1,000 scholarships are open to any high school senior that is continuing their education in a vocational program, professional training, two year college or four year university that meet the below criteria for the two scholarship applications.
- Reside in 97223 or 97224 or go to school in 97223 or 97224
- Plan to pursue a career in business, trades or non-profit sector
- Show involvement in work and/or extracurricular activity.
- Possess a 2.5 GPA or above.
The 2024 application deadline is Friday, March 1st by 4 PM in the Chamber office or postmarked/emailed no later than 2/27/2024. The awardees will receive a phone call informing them of their scholarship and will be formally awarded the scholarship at Tigard Shining Stars Community Awards.
A completed application includes:
- A completed application form that can be downloaded here.
- A one page essay (250 words or less) on a goal you are passionate about.
