Serving America's Military

Ecampus military grant

Oregon State Ecampus will provide financial assistance to currently serving military members who entered the service while they were residents of Oregon and who are using military tuition assistance to help pay for their online classes.

The assistance OSU Ecampus provides will allow service members to fund educational expenses associated with OSU's online courses. This Ecampus military grant is in addition to your other military education benefits.

(NOTE: The OSU Ecampus military grant is not transferrable to military spouses and dependents.)

Eligibility

This program is currently available only to service members who joined the United States military while a resident of Oregon and are currently serving on active duty or as a member of the National Guard or Reserves. 

In order to qualify for the OSU Ecampus military grant, you must be:

  • a current or newly admitted Ecampus degree-seeking student at Oregon State
  • listed in good academic standing with no registration flags 
  • an Oregon resident at the time of your enlistment
(NOTE: If you entered the service as an Oregon resident but records do not show an original residence of Oregon for you, please contact Joan Oakes at joan.oakes@oregonstate.edu or 541-737-4166 to resolve the issue.) 

Award process

OSU's Office of Military and Veteran Resources will determine which students are eligible based on the stated criteria. The award will be provided to eligible students in the form of a voucher through OSU’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, and it is not needs-based. 

There is no need to apply. Eligible students will be notified that they are receiving the assistance.

Funding limit

There is an established funding limit for the program. If that funding limit is met, you will be notified and no more awards will be granted for this academic year.
