It's the mission of the Scholarship Team to expand opportunities for donors and students to invest in education and career training through private financial support. You don't need to be a merit scholar or a student with financial need to apply for OSAC scholarships. All types of scholarships are available. Many are based on criteria such as high school attended, school and community activities, academic interests, or career goals. Some require a minimum GPA and others require no GPA whatsoever. There are 500+ scholarship programs and you may qualify, but you won't know unless you apply.

Search the OSAC Catalog outside of the online application for eligible scholarships, or search within the online application and Apply Here by the annual Final Deadline of March 1.
