If you’re interested in pursuing a post-secondary education, we probably have a scholarship that can help you realize your dream.

OCF manages one of the largest scholarship programs of its kind in the country, awarding thousands of scholarships each year.

Our scholarships support a wide variety of majors, interests and passions. We have scholarships for graduates of specific high schools, current college students and graduate students. Other scholarships support students returning to their educations after time away, for workforce retraining or career advancement.

Underlying every OCF scholarship fund is the belief that post-secondary education is a vital investment in Oregon’s future.

In 2023 OCF awarded

Scholarship Seekers, Please Note!

You can find and apply to scholarships two ways: 

1. Scholarships Through the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC)

OCF partners with the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC), a state agency, to administer nearly 500 of our scholarship funds. This makes your application process easier by letting you complete one common application through OSAC to access numerous scholarships from OCF's portfolio, in addition to other public and private funding sources. Here is OSAC's catalog of scholarships, which is searchable as well as downloadable.
