Scholarships are provided to some winners by:
Portland State University
Oregon State University
University of Oregon 

Lewis and Clark College
Lewis & Clark College will acknowledge outstanding performances at the Northwest Science Expo with scholarship offers to first place category finalists. The first place winners in each category at the fair will be offered at minimum a Faculty Scholarship, which is valued at $29,500 for the 2022-2023 academic year, and is renewable each year based on continued academic excellence.  In order to be awarded the scholarship, students must be accepted through our regular admissions process and enroll at the college immediately following high school graduation.  Students may qualify for a larger academic merit based scholarship upon admission to the college; if that is the case, the larger scholarship will replace the Faculty Scholarship.

Northwest Science Expo Special Awards
Businesses, professional associations, government agencies, and nongovernmental organizations sponsor awards in areas of interest to them. Recognition given has included: cash prizes, scholarships, memberships, certificates, medallions and invitations to meetings. Examples of awards that have been given include: best geology project, best 6th grade project, best use of statistics, best project using a computer and many more. Awards may be targeted to encourage students to perform research in an area of interest to the sponsor. Over a couple of years this usually has an effect on student research topics. Special award sponsors are invited to provide judges to choose the award winner(s) and select criteria for judging.
