Apply for grants, scholarships

Wilsonville students: Do you need cash for college? The Oregon Student Access Commission (OSAC) is a state financial aid agency that awards nearly $70 million each year in grants and scholarships that help students pay for college. More than 450 scholarship programs are available, covering a wide range of student interests and needs, including funding for graduating high school seniors, college undergraduate and graduate students, community college and vocational school students, single parents returning to college and more.

There is no cost to apply. Visit oregonstudentaid.gov and complete the online OSAC scholarship application by 5 p.m. Mar. 1. Submit the application by Feb. 15 and you may be eligible to win a $500 OSAC early bird scholarship.

Students are also encouraged to complete the free application for federal student aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for federal grants and the Oregon Opportunity Grant, the state’s largest need-based grant. Funding is limited, so students should apply as soon as possible.
