Grants

Grant funds do no have to be repaid.

Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is a need based grant awarded to students who are working on their first bachelor’s degree.  The award amount is based on the student’s expected family contribution (EFC).  Students may receive a Pell Grant for full time, 3/4 time, half time, and less than half time attendance (depending on EFC).

Oregon Opportunity Grant

The Oregon Opportunity Grant is awarded to Oregon residents ( RESIDENCY RULES ) attending college in Oregon. You must be taking no less than 6 credit hours per term to receive this grant. It is awarded by the state of Oregon and administered by the Oregon Student Access Commission (OSAC). There is a limited amount of available funding for this grant so you need to file your FAFSA early each year.  If you are not a full time student (12 credit hours or more), your OOGR will be cut in half for the entire academic year.  This is a rule from the State of Oregon, not EOU.

SEOG

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) is one of three federal campus based aid programs. To receive SEOG, students must be eligible for the Pell Grant, demonstrate exceptional need, and be working on their first bachelor’s degree. EOU receives a limited amount of SEOG funding.  Federal SEOG funds may not serve all eligible applicants.

TEACH GRANT

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families.
