Oregon Opportunity Grants
The Oregon Opportunity Grant (OOG) (formerly the State Need Grant) is Oregon’s largest state-funded need-based program for students planning to go to college. The program was established in 1971 by the Oregon Legislature to assist Oregon’s neediest students in attaining a postsecondary education. The OOG receives additional funds from two small federal matching programs.
- Be an undergraduate student enrolled at least half time (i.e., at least 6 credit-hours) at a participating Oregon institution;
- Be financially needy (based on household size and family income and assets; income eligibility information can be found on the OSAC website at www.GetCollegeFunds.org);
- Be an Oregon resident and U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen (members of Native American tribes with traditional ties to Oregon may be considered residents. Click http://www.GetCollegeFunds.com/tribal_residency.html. for more information);
- Meet eligibility requirements for a Federal Pell Grant.
HOW TO APPLY: Oregon students apply for the Opportunity Grant by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is also the application for most federal student aid programs. OSAC notifies eligibile applicants.
