Many scholarships are available to current and incoming students and to those who are already attending the University of Oregon.
You should always start by exploring the plethora of scholarship and funding information available from the UO Office of Financial Aid. Scholarships are based on merit, need, or a combination of both, and do not need to be repaid after graduation. Whatever your situation, scholarships can be a vital piece in funding your education.
To be eligible for need-based scholarships at UO, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal FAFSA. The government uses this form to calculate an estimated family contribution (EFC). The financial aid office subtracts your EFC from your cost of attendance to determine your financial need.
Beyond general university scholarships, students are encouraged to explore scholarships that can be found through churches, high schools, and private organizations. You can learn about these opportunities by using free web searches like Fastweb. You may also want to be in direct contact with large companies in your area, your parent's employer, or other organizations with whom you have a connection. In some cases, you may not have to be directly associated with an organization to qualify for a scholarship.
You can read more about UO’s scholarships and how to find other sources or visit the Financial Aid Office in Oregon Hall to speak with a financial aid counselor.
