Oregon State University is committed to recruiting and retaining motivated, diverse, and driven students. One of the ways we do this is with scholarship opportunities. The College of Forestry offers a wide range of scholarships to continuing and first-year students (including transfer students). Most university and college awards are based on a combination of academic merit and financial need. For additional information on scholarship opportunities available through the university, please visit the OSU Financial Aid & Scholarships page.

The College of Forestry offers over $800,000 in scholarship support annually to graduate, undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students. CoF scholarships are typically between $1,200 and $13,000 per year. While scholarships are generally based on academic performance, some are specific to need, degree program, or other criteria set by our donors, so don’t hesitate to apply. All new and current students (including transfer and post-baccalaureate students) who have been admitted to OSU or are currently enrolled in the College of Forestry are eligible to apply for College of Forestry scholarships.
