The Oregon Promise Grant Application closed March 1, 2016

  • As long as you have a valid FAFSA or ORSAA application, your Oregon Promise application status is "submitted," and your transcripts say "valid," you will be awarded
  • Awards will be announced, by email, once our internal programming is complete; we are currently working on calculating and posting awards
  • View your application status by logging into your profile on OSAC's website
  • Make sure your FAFSA or ORSAA application shows you are a first-year college student and not a graduate student. For the FAFSA and ORSAA, a graduate student is defined as a college student who has already earned a bachelor's degree and is now working on an advanced degree such as a Master's Degree. (Many first-time applicants think it means they are graduating from high school.)

  • Continued program funding is contingent upon legislative action in 2017

The Oregon Promise Grant was created by the Oregon Legislature in 2015 with first awards available during fall 2016. The Oregon Legislature appropriated $10 million for the first year of the program. The purpose of the Oregon Promise Grant is to encourage Oregon residents who are graduating high school students and recent GED graduates to immediately continue their education by providing funding to attend community college in Oregon.
