Southern Oregon University has many merit-based and need-based scholarships available. Some scholarships are awarded based on the information provided in your application for admission. However, many of our scholarships require additional information from you to be considered for an award.  You will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Southern Oregon Scholarship Application (SOSA).


Southern Oregon Scholarship Application (SOSA)

For instructions on completing the SOSA and to see full list of available SOSA scholarships, please visit the SOSA homepage. The deadline for completing the SOSA is February 1. Please be aware that the closer your application for admission is received to the SOSA deadline, the less likely your application for admission will be processed in time for SOSA consideration.

*Note: You must use your student login to access the SOSA. If you are a new student follow this link for instructions on activating your student account before you access the SOSA.
