If you have received notification of being eligible for the Merit Scholarship, please note that you do not need to accept this scholarship until you have received your financial aid award offer. You will be notified by the Financial Aid Office once you have a complete award offer available for you to review.

In addition to the many scholarships that are available nationally, in Oregon and in your local community, Western Oregon University offers nearly 200 different scholarships that you can apply for with one simple form! If you know what you’d like to major in, that department may have scholarships available as well. 

After you are admitted to WOU, you’ll be able to apply for dozens of scholarship opportunities. The deadline is March 1.
