To be eligible, students must graduate from high school or earn their GED in spring/summer 2016 with at least a 2.5 GPA, and must plan to enter community college in fall 2016. Students also must be Oregon residents for at least one year prior to receiving funds (so, a student must have been a resident of Oregon by August 2015 or before). The program will offset tuition costs after federal grants have been applied. Interested students and others can read more in this OPB article.

Funds will be awarded first come, first served, so students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Residents and community partners are also encouraged to share this information with any other residents or families who might qualify.
