Oregon Opportunity Grant
- Scholarship Description
The Oregon Opportunity Grant (OOG) is Oregon's largest state-funded, need-based grant program for college students. OOG is a need-based grant awarded to Oregon residents of all ages who are pursuing their first associates degree or bachelor's degree at an eligible public or private institution. Award amounts vary based on student's financial need and type of institution the student attends. There is not a separate application for the OOG. To be considered for the grant, students must submit their FAFSA or ORSAA by the deadline date each academic year. In order to apply, applicants must submit the FAFSA or ORSAA as soon as possible after the application opens on October 1 each year.
To be eligible for the Oregon Opportunity Grant, applicants must: be an Oregon resident for at least 12 months prior to college attendance and a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen; be an undergraduate student with no prior baccalaureate degrees; be enrolled at least half time (i.e., at least 6 credit-hours) at a participating Oregon-based postsecondary institution; not be in default of any student loans; and demonstrate financial need.
