Paving The Way For Bright Futures

EOU donors make record-breaking $880,000 in scholarships possible

At Eastern Oregon University, we’re on a mission to provide quality education and transform the lives of our students who face financial challenges. Thirty-four percent of EOU students come from low-income families, and 38% are first-generation college students striving to break the cycle of limited opportunities.

In 2022, the EOU Foundation awarded an astonishing $880,000 in scholarships, a historic achievement. This financial support has made a profound impact on the lives of many scholars, providing opportunities they would not have otherwise.

For the 2023-2024 academic year, an astonishing 82% of EOU students qualified for financial aid—that’s four out of every five students! These numbers show the genuine need for your support. Your gift can help ease the financial burden on these dedicated students and give them the chance to achieve a university degree.

Together, we can empower future leaders, innovators, and change-makers. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a significant difference. Join us in creating a brighter future for these promising students. Donate today and be a part of their inspiring journey towards success.

With your help, we can ensure that every student at Eastern Oregon University has the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.
