These days paying for a college education is quite pricey. Nearly every college-bound student will need to secure some level of financial aid to help them cover the costs of their post-secondary education. Mostly every state sponsors a variety of grants and college scholarships designed to make a college education more accessible, and more affordable. 

What are Oregon Scholarships?

The average tuition & fees in Oregon is nearly $7,229 for in-state students and $20,144 for out-of-state students. While paying for college education many people cannot afford the amount and directly jump to the workforce and quit their studies. That is why, Oregon is currently offering a variety of scholarships and state-funded grants, for its resident students who are struggling to meet the rising costs of a college education.

The Oregon Student Assistance Commission administered Oregon’s student aid programs and also the programs are administered through the financial aid offices of state-supported colleges and universities. These programs provide valuable financial assistance to the resident students of the Beaver State and also the programs are a combination of both need-based and merit-based awards. The importance, and value, of making college more accessible to its residents is supported by the government of Oregon. The resident students of the Beaver State have access to some of the best grant and scholarship programs in the country with the hard work of the Oregon Student Assistance Commission.

The First Step- Submitting the FAFSA

Students preparing for college, who are looking for financial aid to help pay for their education, need to fill out and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. To determine the level of financial assistance for which a student is eligible, FAFSA is required for all Federal and state-supported financial aid. After the student’s FAFSA has been submitted, they will receive their Student Aid Report, which will outline the specifics of their eligibility for government-supported college financial aid programs. It must be a priority for every student to fill and apply for FAFSA before applying for any grants, scholarships, or college loans.
