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.
University of Oregon Presidential Scholarships are awarded competitively to outstanding incoming freshmen from Oregon. Approximately 50 freshmen receive this scholarship each year, and the awarding process is highly selective. Presidential Scholarships are made possible by the generous contributions of donors to the University of Oregon scholarship fund. Eligible applicants must have a 3.85 GPA, and demonstrated history of leadership and volunteer service activities. This is renewable upon a 3.25 GPA and maintaining 12 credit hours per semester.
