Initiatives & Programs
Act Six Leadership and Scholarship Initiative is Portland's only full-need, 4-year urban leadership scholarship for emerging urban leaders who want to use their college education to make a difference on campus and in their communities at home using a four-part strategy.
Recruit and Select - Locally recruit and select diverse, multicultural cadres of promising urban student leaders.
Train and Prepare - Intensively train these groups of students in the year prior to college, equipping them to support each other, succeed academically and grow as service-minded leaders.
Send and Fund - Send the teams together with unsurpassed scholarships for four years of education at partner colleges. George Fox University provides the scholarship funding (inclusive of tuition, room and board) that allows these students to pursue their academic dreams while at our institution.
Support and Inspire - Provide strong campus support, ongoing leadership development and vocational connections to inspire scholars to serve their home communities.

Each year George Fox awards Multicultural Leadership Scholarships to students in the amount of $2,500 or $3,000. For more information, visit the undergraduate financial aid page.
