Since 1988, when the Portland Oregon Chapter first began awarding monetary scholarships, over $320,000 has been sent directly to colleges to help pay tuition for our Scholar-Athletes who are not on a full-ride athletic scholarship. To be a Portland Oregon NFF Scholar-Athlete the student-athlete must have earned a cumulative grade point average during grades 9-11 that is 3.0 or higher. The student-athlete must have finished their senior football season earning 1st or 2nd Team All-League honors. Our Scholar-Athlete winners are not required to play football in college, but if they do, they may be eligible to win the National High School Scholar-Athlete Award which will be awarded in December of 2017 at the National Banquet held in New York City.
