Children’s Scholarship Fund-Oregon

A quality elementary school education puts children on the path to success in life. To that end, the Children’s Scholarship Fund and its partner programs provide partial scholarships to low-income families so their children can attend the K-8 schools that will help them reach their full potential.

A program of Cascade Policy Institute, CSF-Oregon is part of the Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) national network of scholarship granting organizations. CSF and its partner programs are committed to empowering families in need with the ability to choose the K-8 schools that best meet their children’s needs, regardless of their ability to pay or the neighborhoods where they live. CSF also supports parental choice and reform efforts that help all children get the education they deserve.

CSF-Oregon empowers K-8 students from lower-income Oregon families to get a quality education and a “hand up” in life by providing partial tuition scholarships to the tuition-based schools of their parents’ choice. Since 1998, the Children’s Scholarship Fund and its independent partners have provided scholarships worth $789 million, changing the lives of almost 174,000 low-income children.

A need-based scholarship program, CSF-Oregon accepts applications from lower-income families residing anywhere in the state of Oregon. Click here to see program eligibility requirements.

The gift of education can change a low-income child’s future. For more information, visit the website of the Children’s Scholarship Fund-Oregon.

    I work with a non profit that educates homeschooled children. How would the families that take classes with us apply to this fund? Thank you.

    My children reside in Southwest Washington and attend a tuition based school in our local areal. Do you know if we can get assistance since the Portland, Oregon office is the closest to our area? Does an affiliate handle Washington schools? My children are also Native American, does this scholarship support children of minorities or is that something entirely different? I am so many questions…
