It's the mission of the Scholarship Team to expand opportunities for donors and students to invest in education and career training through private financial support. You don't need to be a merit scholar or a student with financial need to apply for OSAC scholarships. All types of scholarships are available. Many are based on criteria such as high school attended, school and community activities, academic interests, or career goals. Some require a minimum GPA and others require no GPA whatsoever. There are 500+ scholarship programs and you may qualify, but you won't know unless you apply.
Through the generosity of private donors, civic organizations, employers, member-based organizations, and foundation partners such as The Oregon Community Foundation, The Ford Family Foundation, and many others, thousands of students each year are the recipients of scholarships administered by OSAC.
OSAC awards more than $16 million in private scholarships annually. Awards range from $1000 to $10,000, or more.
