Are you eligible to apply for OSAC scholarships?

OSAC scholarships may be used only at U.S. institutions eligible to participate in Title IV federal student aid programs (U.S. military academies are not eligible).

Unless otherwise specified in the individual scholarship descriptions, you must:
  • Be a U.S. citizen or an eligible noncitizen in the United States for other than a temporary purpose, and intend to become a permanent resident of the United States. See list below for scholarships available to non-U.S. citizens/non-eligible noncitizens.
  • Be an Oregon resident. Residency is usually established when an independent student or the parents of a dependent student have been in continuous residency in Oregon for 12 months before enrollment. For exceptions, such as tribal residency, see definition of Oregon resident.
  • Be an Oregon graduating high school student during the current academic year, or a GED or home-schooled graduate, or a first-time college freshman, undergraduate, or graduate student.
  • Have Oregon listed as your home of record if you are U.S. military personnel.
  • Not owe a refund on an educational grant or be in default on any educations loans.

If you are an out-of-state resident, you can customize your scholarship search by using the online filter called "Residency". To search for scholarships, see our catalog. Check program eligibility requirements for residency requirements.
