$200 scholarship for summer classes

Each month from February 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 soon to enter to win a $200 scholarship for summer classes! Submit your entry from 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, March 7, through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, March 8. We will notify the winner by March 13. If you miss this opportunity, there will be more chances coming up soon, so check back frequently. 

*Scholarship funds cannot be applied toward OSU Ecampus, VetMed or Pharm D courses or INTO students.

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