Congratulations to our 2019 Mattress Lot Scholars. This year we awarded five (5) $1000 college scholarships to top graduating seniors from East-Side Portland Public High Schools. A committee of teachers, business leaders, non-profit leaders and staff at Mattress Lot selects the scholars from dozens of applications. Scholars are chosen based on academic performance, community leadership experience, financial need and they write an essay describing their “dream for making Portland a better city”.
Since we started awarding scholarships in 2014, Mattress Lot has donated more than $30,000 to deserving students from the East-Side neighborhoods we serve.
