OregonStudentAid.gov is the place to find money for college, awarding students more than $102 million in grants and scholarships each year. Funding includes, but is not limited to, the Oregon Opportunity Grant, the Oregon Promise Grant, Scholarships, and specific grants for foster care youth, students caring for dependents, Oregon National Guard members, and resources available to Oregon residents who are undocumented or have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status.

“If the 15th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is delayed until the next business day. Your return is considered filed on time if the envelope is properly addressed, postmarked, and deposited in the mail by the due date.
“If you can’t file by the due date of your return, you should request an extension of time to file. To receive an automatic 6-month extension of time to file your return, you must file Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (PDF) by the due date of your return. An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. You may be subject to a late payment penalty on any tax not paid by the original due date of your return.”
