UO Scholarships and Financial Aid
About 65 percent of UO undergraduates receive some form of financial aid. This amounts to more than $256 million in grants and scholarships awarded each year. Financial aid and scholarships are available to incoming students and those already attending the UO.
The SOJC awards more than 150 scholarships each year. Many of these are made possible by donations from alumni who have been moved to give back. Once you're admitted as an SOJC student, you'll be eligible to apply for these additional awards.
