The Oregon Office of Student Access and Commission (OSAC), provides Oregon students the ability to apply for numerous scholarships with one application and is the easiest, most efficient way to access Oregon scholarships.
The process for submitting an application begins in early fall. It is best to start as early as possible, so students can view all of the options available. In total, OSAC applicants can apply to more than 500 scholarships. View the list of Scholarships.
To get started, students can visit the OSAC website and begin the application.
The OSAC scholarship application has five major parts:
- Personal information
- School information
- Activities chart
- Four personal statements
- School transcripts
Depending on the scholarship the student is applying for, there may be extra steps that need to be taken to complete each, like additional essays or documents.
In order to receive an early review and chance to correct any errors, applications should be submitted by the Early Bird deadline of February 15. Error-free submissions will be entered in a drawing for a $1,000 Early Bird scholarship. The final deadline to submit the OSAC application is March 1. Students should plan ahead and work with their ASPIRE mentor to make sure their application is finalized by the deadline.
