More students are taking advantage of Oregon State Universityâ€™s â€œBridge to Successâ€? program than its creators expected. Announced last spring to begin with this fallâ€™s term, the program was expected to cover fees and tuition for about 10 percent of its Oregon students, or about 1,500 people.
OSU officials, however, have approved awards for some 2,400 students, about half of whom have income levels that qualify them for assistance with books and supplies.
â€œThe Campaign for OSU is doing well, and it has helped us with increased gift aid we can use,â€? said Kate Peterson, assistant provost for enrollment management and one of the creators of the Bridge to Success program.
This is outstanding news! We at the Office of Admissions are thrilled to see more Oregonians with the greatest need getting help. Big credit goes to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for creating and managing the Bridge to Success and to the fundraisers with the Campaign for OSU for bringing in more and more resources!!
