WOU Jump-Start

 

The Oregon Student Access Commission (OSAC) has recently emailed students who applied for the 2018 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 2018-19 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 2018 (transfer students can enroll in Winter or Spring)

One scholarship level:
