University-wide scholarships are offered centrally through the Office of Admissions or the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships. Some scholarships for incoming freshmen require an additional and separate application. Others are awarded automatically based on the materials in your undergraduate application for admission and/or the financial information on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Criteria will vary by scholarship.
The University of Oregon Diversity Excellence Scholarship recognizes the academic achievement and potential of students who, through sharing their varied cultural perspectives, will enhance the education of all UO students and the excellence of the University. Eligible applicants must have a 3.0 GPA and demonstrate financial need. This is open to both undergraduates and graduate students. This is renewable upon a 3.0 GPA and maintaining 12 credit hours per semester.
