College Scholarships

This year, Oregonians will award four $1,000 scholarships to exemplary students.

College is a lot of things: exciting, challenging, rewarding - did we forget to mention expensive? In order to help students pursue their educational dreams, Oregonians Credit Union will award four $1,000 scholarships:

  • Graduating High School Students: two $1,000 scholarships
  • Current College Students: two $1,000 scholarships

If your high school graduation is around the corner or you'll be attending another year of college during the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year, we invite you to apply.
