WOU Jump-Start

 

The Oregon Student Access Commission (OSAC) has recently emailed students who applied for the 2017 Oregon Promise Grants to check their OSAC Portal regarding the awarding decisions.

Western Oregon University is the only Oregon college or university that has created a scholarship that supports Oregon Promise students.  As the public university that has the highest percentage of Oregon students, WOU is focused on serving Oregon and educating its students.  The WOU Jump-Start offers new freshmen and transfer students grants of up to $1,500 a year for two years.

Receiving the Jump-Start is easy:

  1. Receive admittance to WOU for 2017-18 academic year (applications are still being accepted and WOU will waive the $60 application fee).
  2. Provide a copy of the OSAC e-mail or print-out of the OSAC Portal stating your Oregon Promise application is valid.
  3. Enroll in courses at WOU for Fall 2017 (transfer students can enroll in Winter or Spring)

There are two scholarship levels:

Level one

  • $1,500
  • Students who received admittance to the Oregon Promise program

Level two

  • $1,000
  • Students who qualify for the Oregon Promise program in every aspect except that their family income level is too high

The duration of both scholarship levels is two years.

To maintain this award students must enroll in at least 12 credits per term.

To renew this award students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards by the end of spring 2018.

 

WOU Jump-Start Plus

 

Students with the Oregon Promise who decide to transfer to Western Oregon University will receive $1,500 per year up to 90 total credits or the remainder of their Oregon Promise eligibility, whichever comes first.

To maintain this award students must enroll in at least 12 credits per term.

To renew this award students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards by the end of spring 2018.
