The PEO Educational Foundation is a non profit charitable corporation in Oregon whose mission is to provide scholarships to Oregon citizens pursuing engineering degrees at any one of Oregon's five ABET accredited colleges. It has its own Board and raises funds both in concert with PEO and independently.
Over the past 40 years the Foundation has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships. Current schools eligible for awards are Oregon State, Portland State, George Fox, Oregon Institute of Technology and University of Portland.
Historically over the past 20 years Oregon has provided less support for college students than most other states. However, largely due to the quality of the state's educators, Oregon students continue to outperform the nation on both the Fundamentals and the Professional exams.
It will continue to be important for the Foundation to increase its support in order to maintain this level of performance in the future.
