This program provides the Graduate Dean the authority to award graduate tuition scholarships to eligible students who do not fall into the categories provided by items #5 through #9 in the Graduate Tuition Remission Allocation Model, if doing so meets other institutional interests in diversity, enrollment goals, faculty productivity, student retention, or student success.

The intent is to provide the Graduate Dean flexibility in responding to institutional needs as specified under "scope".

Criteria

Student must be a degree-seeking graduate student. Other criteria will be determined on a case by case basis.

Procedures

Academic units may submit written requests to the Graduate School. The request must demonstrate how the award would advance institutional interests in diversity, enrollment goals, faculty productivity, student retention, or student success.

PLEASE NOTE: The Graduate School’s tuition waiver support funding for 2017-18 is fully committed at this time.  However, we will continue to accept requests for 2017-2018 tuition waiver support for qualifying Graduate Fellowship appointments, subject to budget availability.  We will let you know about budget availability for your tuition waiver support request beginning 8/20/2017. Questions, send an email to Graduate.Scholarships@oregonstate.edu.

Award Level

Determined on a case by case basis, but not to exceed the value of full time graduate tuition each term of the award period as appropriate for the student's residency status.

Award Distribution

Tuition support will be posted directly to the student's account as a scholarship at the beginning of each academic term during the award period, pending the student's eligibility and 12-credit enrollment for the term.

Deadline

To be given priority consideration, academic units must submit requests to the Graduate School by February 13 each year. After the priority deadline, requests will be considered on a rolling basis as funds are available.
