The mission of the Portland English as a Second Language Scholarship Fund is to help local immigrants and refugees gain the English language skills necessary to achieve their post-secondary educational goals in the United States.

Since 2000, The Fund has given more than 150 scholarships and $100,000 to cover the cost of advanced ESL courses for students.
