Past contests

$200 scholarship for summer classes

Each month from January to May, the OSU Summer Session team hosts a $200 Summer Session scholarship drawing toward credit-based, on-campus summer classes in Corvallis or at Hatfield Marine Science Center during OSU's summer term. Some exclusions apply.*

Check back beginning in January for chances to win a scholarship.

*Scholarship funds cannot be applied toward INTO, veterinary medicine or Pharm.D. courses.

Hear from past winners on how the scholarship helped them pursue their passions.

Warm Up to Summer with free beverages

Summer can never get here quickly enough, so to speed up the process – at least artificially – we set up a booth monthly from November to May around campus to offer you and your classmates free refreshments, a chance to spin the prize wheel, an opportunity to enter to win a $200 summer scholarship and guidance to help you plan your summer at OSU.

Check back in for the 2017 Warm Up to Summer schedule.

T-shirt design contest, $1,000 summer scholarship

2016 T-shirt contest

Be sure to keep an eye out next year for your chance to win a $1,000 summer scholarship toward credit-based, on-campus classes in Corvallis or at HMSC during Oregon State's 2017 summer term.

Details: If you have skills as a designer or simply like to doodle, then you could be the artist who designs next year's OSU Summer Session T-shirt – and wins a $1,000 summer scholarship in the process.

Here's a look at our 2016 T-shirt design contest, which was open to all current OSU students who put their talent to the test.

If you haven't already seen it being worn all over campus by your friends and classmates, read this story to check out the 2016 winning design by mechanical engineering student Francisco Boschetti Tofano (pictured).

More contests and unique scholarship opportunities will be announced in the coming months. If you have any questions about OSU Summer Session contests, contact us at 800-375-9359 or
