GED Test Scholarship Fund

The Portland Literacy Council started the GED Test Scholarship Fund in 2003. The fund assists students by paying a portion (or sometimes all) of the mandatory fees associated with taking the GED exams.

GED scholarships are awarded as financial vouchers. Scholarship recipients will receive a voucher code number to be used when they register for the GED tests.

    To qualify for the GED Test Scholarship, you MUST be:

    • currently living within Multnomah, Washington, or Clackamas counties,
    • at least 18 years old,
    • not currently enrolled in a traditional high school program, and
    • prepared to take the first exam immediately after receiving notification of the award.
