The Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) goal is to assist Oregon students in pursuing their college and career goals. Below are some financial aid resources to help Oregon Students.
Here is more information on timelines of interest from the OSAC:
October: File your FAFSA or ORSAA as soon as possible after October 1. Doing so will ensure you are considered for all scholarships that consider financial need.
November - February: Start your OSAC scholarship application and submit starting in November through March 1.
February 15*: Early Bird deadline. Complete applications (including transcripts) submitted by this date will be entered into a drawing for one of several $1,000 Early Bird scholarship awards.
March 1*: Final deadline for all materials to be submitted to OSAC.
April - August: Track your application status and scholarship awards in the OSAC Student Portal.
Colleges provide institutional grants and scholarships to help make up the difference between college costs and what a family can be expected to contribute through income, savings, loans, and student earnings. Awards may be based on academic merit, artistic or athletic talent, financial need, or other factors. You can learn more about the types of institutional grants and scholarships awarded by checking each college's financial aid website.
Private scholarships provide funding for students who meet the requirements specified by the donor organization. Local organizations or businesses may offer scholarships to students who plan to study at a regional college or plan to pursue a degree in a particular field of study.
Check with your High School Guidance Counselor office for details about local and regional scholarships.
