The Sons of Portugal Scholarship was established in 1965 with the primary objective of recognizing and rewarding academic excellence among students of Portuguese descent. Scholarship awards  are given to High School Seniors and College students seeking a bachelors degree in an approved undergraduate program of study.

Navigator Award

This award, established in honor of our 50th anniversary, is presented to an individual who is a positive inspiration and consistently demonstrates an exceptional loyalty to the Portuguese community.  They give of themselves selflessly to others and exemplify perseverance and leadership in their everyday lives.  This person’s long-term commitment of outstanding service influences others to pursue knowledge, discipline and generosity.
