Be sure to pick up one of the 50,000 Oregon Student Assistance Commission (OSAC) Scholarship Application booklets that have been distributed to Oregon high school counseling and college financial aid offices or surf on over to the “eApp,” or the electronic version at www.GetCollegeFunds.org.  Either way, make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to compete for money for college.  It’s free of charge!  A little time and determination could pay off!

The OSAC scholarship program enables students of all ages to apply for many different scholarships through a single, “unified” application.  Scholarship donors determine the criteria for who is awarded and where the scholarship may be used.  Most are for Oregon residents entering or returning to various types of Oregon colleges in the fall of 2007.  Some are open to out-of-state students and many may be used at eligible colleges throughout the United States.  

The Oregon Student Assistance Commission is the state agency that partners with numerous private donors, the Oregon Community Foundation, The Ford Family Foundation, and financial institutions to administer more than 340 private scholarship programs for Oregon students.  This statewide public/private partnership model is unique in the nation.  The agency also manages the Oregon Opportunity Grant and other financial aid programs for specific student populations.  For more information, call 800-452-8807 ext 7395, or visit www.GetCollegeFunds.org
