Scholarships and Fellowships

 

When you open the door to an education at Oregon State University, you change the course of a student’s life.

Undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships ease students’ financial burdens and reward them for academic excellence, leadership and achievement. 

A scholarship can change everything:

  • Reducing student loan debt
  • Allowing students to cut back on work hours, so they can focus on their classes
  • Clearing the way for powerful learning experiences like internships, research, study abroad
  • Helping students persevere after a setback
  • Ensuring students reach the finish line—graduation

NEW: Finish in Four, a program that will make it possible for more Oregon resident students to graduate in four years with little or no debt. More than financial aid, it’s part of a multifaceted, university-wide effort designed to help students thrive. 

Every gift for students matters and is greatly appreciated. Top priority funds are listed below.
