OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Scholarships and Funding

Funding your College Education

Oregon State University is dedicated to your success. The following scholarships have been developed with international students in mind. Some of the scholarships listed will be automatically considered for every new OSU application, but many scholarships require the student to find and apply independently. We've compiled a list of resources that you should look into for more funding options. 

For more information, check out our PowerPoint from the ISAS Scholarship Workshop.

Scholarships by Individual Colleges

Students may also qualify for scholarships based on their major or college within the university. OSU maintains a searchable Scholarship Database to help find funding based on your immigration status, GPA and more. You may also contact the college/department you’ll be studying with to find more information about available funding.
