Scholarships for UO Students
Nearly 40 scholarships are available for UO students to help fund their study or intern abroad experiences. Eligibility, award amount, application process, and deadlines vary by scholarship. Scholarships are often used to supplement the cost of a study abroad program and, in many cases, students can receive and use multiple scholarships for the same program in addition to their financial aid.
