Grants are awesome! This is the type of financial aid you don’t need to pay back so that’s great financial support. But they do come with responsibilities and things you need to know.
The Federal Pell Grant and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) provide funds to eligible undergraduates who are admitted and enrolled in an eligible degree program. Eligibility is based on need as determined by your FAFSA. Applications are accepted throughout the academic year, although we recommend you apply early for the FSEOG funds, as they are limited.
The Oregon Opportunity Grant Program provides funds to eligible Oregon resident undergraduates who are admitted to an eligible degree program and enrolled, at least, half-time. This also is a need-based program. The Office of Student Access and Completion determines your eligibility by analyzing your FAFSA. We recommend you apply early, as funds are limited.
