Student Academic Grants & Awards

Welcome! In these pages we will introduce you to a myriad of opportunities, and provide a range of resources to help you decide where you are going and how to get there. Here you'll find information on a variety of competitive grants and scholarships, links to scholarship foundation home pages, and plenty of practical advice from programs and past applicants to help you put together an outstanding application.

Whatever your goals may be, a scholarship is a small part of the journey you are taking through Willamette, and beyond.
