Scholarships

Undocumented students are currently not eligible for federal financial aid to help cover college expenses. However, many WOU, Oregon, and private scholarships do not require a FAFSA (federal financial aid form) and can be applied for by anyone who meets the criteria. These can be found on the WOU website: www.wou.edu/scholarships.

 

In addition, there are a number of scholarships aimed at helping undocumented students begin or complete their university education. Check out these websites for more information about application criteria, processes and deadlines:
