The Graduate School invites nominations for the Oregon Lottery Graduate Scholarship. Funds for this scholarship are provided through the Oregon State Lottery and will be awarded to domestic or international graduate students enrolled in an advanced degree program at Oregon State University during the 2020-2021 academic year. These scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need.
The Graduate School anticipates awarding approximately 25 Oregon Lottery scholarships for the 2019-2020 AY. Scholarship amounts vary, but awards typically do not exceed $5,000. The scholarship will be disbursed in three installments through the academic year. Scholarships for less than an academic year will be pro-rated. This scholarship may be offered in addition to a graduate assistantship or fellowship.
Once the nomination pool is established, the Graduate School will award approximately one-half of the available funds on the basis of academic merit, and approximately one-half on the basis of financial need and academic merit.
The nomination period begins on October 1, 2019. All nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m., April 6, 2020. Awards will be determined in May, 2020.
Nominations may be submitted by the student's graduate program director or department chair/head. Students may not apply directly for this award. Each unit (as defined by university major code) may nominate no more than two students (total) per award cycle.
