    Tri-Met Bus Passes
    If your student is in need of a Tri-Met monthly bus pass, please contact me. I can connect you to receive a pass for your student. Adult passes are also available at a discounted rate but the adult will need to apply in person at a participating Tri-Met office location.

    High School Summer Opportunity
    The University of Oregon is pleased to offer the Indigenous Pre-College Academy (IPCA). This summer academy aims to create a cohort of college-bound Indigenous students. Over the course of this eight-day program, the students will be acquainted with the UO's campus, facilities, students, and staff. The staff hopes to foster an early sense of comfortability on college campuses that will make the transition into higher education that much easier for
    students. Students will stay in our new Kalapuya Ilihi residence hall and experience living and learning on a college campus. Clink here for more information.

    AISES Intel - Growing the Legacy Scholarship Program
    The Intel Growing the Legacy Scholarship Program will support undergraduate and graduate students. This Program includes financial support, mentorship, paid internship opportunities, and, upon successful graduation, employment opportunities with Intel. While this program is not automatically renewing, awardees are encouraged to re-apply each year. As Intel will provide opportunities for paid internships, students will also be evaluated based on their interest in participating in an Intel internship in Summer 2020.
