Oregon students should apply for privately funded scholarships at oregonstudentaid.gov by the deadline of 5 p.m. March 1.

Oregon students may explore over 600 scholarships and apply for up to 40 with just one application, and there is no cost to apply. Scholarship funds are available for graduating high school seniors, college undergraduate and graduate students, GED and homeschooled students, community college and vocational school students, single parents returning to school and more.

In addition to the scholarship application, students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA) to be considered for federal and state financial aid, including grants and loans. ​

The ORSAA is Oregon’s alternative to the FAFSA for undocumented students, including students who have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status. OSAC uses data from the FAFSA or the ORSAA to determine students' eligibility for the Oregon Promise, the Oregon Opportunity Grant and numerous scholarships. Information from the FAFSA is also used to determine eligibility for federal aid, including the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Direct Loans and Federal Work-Study.

For further information about deadlines and eligibility for the Oregon Promise and the Oregon Opportunity Grant, visit oregonstudentaid.gov.
