The Children’s Scholarship Fund-Portland helps children from lower-income Oregon families get a “hand up” in life through a quality education. CSF-Portland awards partial tuition scholarships to financially needy elementary students to attend any private, parochial or home school of their parents’ or guardians’ choice.

The Children’s Scholarship Fund aims to maximize educational opportunity for all children: for those in need by offering tuition assistance in grades K-8 for alternatives to faltering conventional schools and for all children by supporting and cultivating education reform and school choice efforts.
