The Oregon PTA Teacher Education Scholarship is for Oregon residents who are studying for a teaching degree at an Oregon public college or university. The scholarship is a one- time award of $500 and is not renewable. Scholarship recipients may, however, re-apply in subsequent years. Scholarship winners will be selected in June. Recipients will be notified by personal phone call, email, or regular mail, soon after. The counseling office of high school winners will also be notified. A check will be mailed to the college/university the scholarship winner indicates on the application. Checks will be mailed before classes start in September.
The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We work in partnership with a wide array of individuals and organizations to accomplish our agreed-upon goals. We are dedicated to promoting children’s health, well-being, and educational success through strong parent, family, and community involvement. We act consistently with our beliefs. When we err, we acknowledge the mistake and seek to make amends.
