High School Scholarships
Information is at the bottom of this page.
we are working with Reynolds High School in Troutdale and have received ten applications for our three scholarships. We awarded the scholarships at SENIOR AWARDS NIGHT JUNE 6TH. We will continue raising funds all summer and give the scholarship checks to the students at the end of August.
The students are receiving much more information about the dangers of student debt but understanding what that means varies greatly. We see a need to start Strike Debt Clubs at Portland Community College and Mt. Hood Community College. Student members can hold Debtors' Assemblies to help educate their peers.
Strike Debt started a Scholarship fund and gave out scholarships to two Franklin High School Graduates. Applicants were asked to write an essay about student debt and how it might affect their futures. Our committee of six selected two women who were the first in their families to graduate from high school. They are both completing their first year at Portland Community College.
Please donate to our Scholarship Fund. 100% of all donations go to the students. See the information below to contribute.
