Scholarship Application Timeline & Deadlines

  1. Early fall: Begin searching and selecting scholarship opportunities in the OSAC Scholarship Catalog. Return often, as new scholarships are always being added.
  2. October: File your FAFSA or ORSAA as soon as possible after October 1. Doing so will ensure you are considered for all scholarships that consider financial need.
  3. November - February: Start your OSAC scholarship application and submit from November through March 1. You can save and come back to your application before you submit.
    • First-time applicants: create an OSAC account and start the OSAC Scholarship Application.
    • Returning applicants: refresh and update your application from last year.
    • High school juniors may start a "test application", but cannot submit until their year of graduation.
  4. February 15*: Early Bird deadline. Complete applications (including transcripts) submitted by this date will be entered into a drawing for one of several $1,000 Early Bird scholarship awards.
  5. March 1*: Final deadline for all materials to be submitted to OSAC.
  6. April - August: Track your application status and scholarship awards in the OSAC Student Portal.

* If a deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, it will automatically be extended to 5:00 p.m. (PST) of the following business day.
