ACE Scholarships

Each year, ACE Oregon offers scholarships to seniors who are committed to pursuing construction-related careers in college. Thanks to support from many leading firms in Portland’s construction industry, the ACE Mentor Program of Oregon was able to award a total of $92,000 in scholarships to 15 students in 2020.

For application instructions, see below or visit our Scholarships page.

ACE National also has a list of scholarships on their Students tab, including a list of 20 national organizations and firms offering scholarships for high school students and ACE alumni in college.

Other companies and foundations often offer other scholarship opportunities for ACE students and alumni. Some of our partners have included the Home Builders Foundation, U.S. Green Building Council, Society for Marketing Professional Services, and more.

Applications and deadlines vary depending on the scholarship. ACE Oregon staff will send out information to ACE students via email once applications become available.
