The College of Forestry online scholarship application process closes for all students (new first-year, new transfer, and current students). The online application must be completed in its entirety and submitted  by this dateLate applications will not be accepted.

Important Notes

Before you apply, be sure to note that:

  • You must apply for scholarships each year you wish to be considered for a scholarships (there are no "automatically renewing" scholarships, so even if you get a scholarship one year you are not guarenteed to get a scholarship the next).
  • The application process requires you to write several short essays. It is advised that you write these essays in a text editor program, such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice Word, to check for spelling errors.
  • Don't be dismayed if you do not receive a CoF scholarship for your first year enrolled at OSU in the College of Forestry.  First-year scholarships are very competitive as students have not yet proven success at the college or university level (especially in forestry coursework).  Please apply again the next year as you may be surprised what a successful first year in your forestry studies can bring to you by way of scholarship funding from the CoF.

 
If you have questions regarding the process or your eligibility, please direct them to (541) 737-1594 or email Kira Hughes.
