Student Support Scholarship Funding Continues for 2018
The City of Hillsboro is investing an additional $125,000 to provide 50 student support scholarships for the Portland Community College (PCC) Future Connect Program.
Since 2013, the Hillsboro City Council has approved $650,000 in total contributions to support 300 Hillsboro students who are either low-income or first-generation college students.
Each Future Connect scholarship helps with tuition and coaching support throughout students’ enrollment at PCC. Funding comes from fees paid by businesses in the City’s Enterprise Zone.
The City of Hillsboro has hired more than 25 PCC Future Connect students as summer interns since 2013.
