The OSAC Scholarship Application: Where, When, & How to Apply!

Last updated February 6, 2024

Each year, the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) in Oregon awards grants and scholarships of more than $10 million to Oregon students. They have compiled everything into one centralized location, the OSAC Scholarship Application. We’re here to help you complete this application and get as much money for college as possible!

Am I eligible to apply for OSAC scholarships?

Here are eligibility requirements for OSAC scholarships: 

  • Applicant must be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen of the United States for other than a temporary purpose.
  • Applicant must be an Oregon resident. To learn more about Oregon residency, head over to OSAC’s website.
  • Applicant must be a graduating high school student, GED graduate, first-time college freshman, undergraduate, or graduate student during the current academic year.

Do I need to submit an essay or personal statement with my application?

Possibly. Individual scholarship programs have their own requirements around the submission of essays or personal statements. Make sure to review the requirements of any scholarships you are interested in to see if they require any supplemental written materials. The OSAC Scholarship Application has a 1,000 character limit for each personal statement submitted (including spaces). Any personal statements over this limit will be cut off when added to the application form.
