The PSU Foundation raises and manages philanthropic gifts in support of the mission and priorities of Portland State University.
Personal technology, such as a reliable laptop and wi-fi access, is crucial to student success. The purchase of a new and functional laptop can be unreachable for some PSU students who must then use outdated or shared systems. Recipients of this scholarship will receive a quality laptop that is theirs to keep--even beyond their experience at PSU.
