Scholar Athletes Inspire Us

They are energetic and confident examples of achievement through athletics.

The annual scholar athlete scholarship is awarded to the 28 graduating seniors of the MAC Scholar Athlete Program.  This program encompasses the Portland metropolitan area.

Students are selected by each high school’s selection committee near the end of their sophomore year based on their athletic and academic accomplishments.

The Multnomah Athletic Foundation funds a scholarship to the post secondary institution of the Scholar Athlete’s choice.

The institution can be a vocational school, 2 year school or 4 year school.  The award can be used any time within a 6 year period after graduating from high school.

The scholarship was established in 2004 by James F. Miller.
