For over 40 years the Portland Lodge of the C.A.C.A. has sponsored the Fred G. Lee Memorial Scholarship for qualified Oregon and Clark County of Washington State graduating high school seniors. This scholarship is awarded to graduating senior students on the merits of academics, leadership, and community involvement.
The winner receives a $4,000 scholarship and two runner-up amounts are for $1,000 each. Applications for this scholarship are due by April 1, 2014.
All applicants must have a parent/guardian who is a member of the C.A.C.A. Portland Lodge.

We raised $800.00 last year and was able to help 32 families in the Asian
community. Our goal is to exceed last year’s giving to help needy families. As in
the years past, we will be purchasing gift cards with the donations and share
the gifts with the less fortunate Asian families. The gifts will be distributed
through the Asian Health Service Center. Please send your support toward this
