PALCUS Sets Goal to Raise $10,000 by December 31st to Seed Scholarship Fund - Can you spare $10 for Scholarships?


Launched in September of this year, the PALCUS Scholarship Program was established with the purpose of providing nationwide, merit-based scholarships in support of Portuguese American students in the pursuit of their higher education goals.


The goal of the PALCUS Scholarship Fund is to develop a stream of funding that will provide for one or more students to benefit from substantial scholarship awards each year.


We are asking you, the community, to help us establish a strong base for this Fund so that we can provide substantial scholarships that will have a real impact on their ability to afford higher education.

With your
donation of just $10, we can reach our goal of $10,000 to help seed the PALCUS Scholarship Fund by December 31st! 


100% of your donation will go to the Scholarship Fund.

In this role PALCUS advance the community professionally, politically and culturally while working to ensure that issues directly affecting our community are addressed through our network of government and community leaders.
