Scholarship committees want to give funding to students who will be successful in their education, career, and life. Your challenge is to "prove" to scholarship committees that you are a good investment! On your scholarship applications, you need to demonstrate that you have qualities that will make you successful, such as initiative, determination, integrity, service to others, leadership, overcoming obstacles, commitment, etc. The list could go on and on....
Start by identifying your skills, values, and strengths, then outline examples of past experiences where you have demonstrated those qualities. Seek ideas, help, and advice from people who know you well (family, friends, advisors, supervisors, etc.) and who can help you present yourself as a strong scholarship applicant.
CES advisors and Student Service Associates (peer assistants) are available to help you with your scholarship search!

Be wary of "scholarship scams" and organizations that will do your search for you for a fee. Students and parents are annually defrauded by scholarship scams. You can find out more information about "scams" here.

Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC)
OSAC is the state student financial aid agency for Oregon, administering a variety of state, federal, and privately funded student aid programs.
