Merit-Based Scholarships



"I owe a lot to the Presidential Scholarship because it has allowed me to focus much more on my studies."

- Branden Hansen, music education

Private support is critical to OSU's ability to attract talented students. Bringing high-achieving students to Oregon State benefits the entire community. And for the students, receiving a scholarship means they can fully realize their potential at OSU and in their careers.

Importance of merit-based scholarships:

  • reward high academic achievement
  • educate the next generation of leaders
  • help keep Oregon's brightest students in state
  • support campus leaders who inspire their peers
  • raise the academic profile of OSU
