The Renaissance Foundation is located in Portland, OR and has staff working in Lake Oswego, OR and Chicago, IL. Primarily our efforts are focused in Oregon and Chicago, IL, but we fund organizations and proposals all over the US. One main aspect of the foundations work involves awarding funds to college students through the Renaissance Scholars program. In 2019, we expanded our scholarship programming to reach students in Chicago, IL and Baltimore, MD. Our topmost attended schools include Portland State University, University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We work with students to maintain academic success throughout the school year and host events for students to meet up and engage with each other, foundation staff, and our co-trustees, Irving Levin and Stephanie Fowler. Our scholars attend colleges and universities all over the U.S.! See the map below to find where our Renaissance Scholars are attending this school year!
