Scholarships

Whether you are a graduating high school senior or returning to get your education, there are resources available to help you finance your education without taking on student loan debt. An important first step is to submit a Free Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. Many scholarship applications will require you to provide the Estimated Family Contribution amount from your FAFSA report.

If you are struggling to afford your education, we encourage you to talk with a financial aid advisor and to take the time to see if you are eligible for a scholarship. In addition to the resources you find here, please visit the Oregon Student Access Commission where you can see over 450 scholarship opportunities available to students in Oregon.
