05.10.2022 Education

SALEM – The Higher Education Coordinating Commission announced that the application for the Oregon Tribal Student Grant for 2022-23 is now open.

The grant is a new state financial aid program supported by the Oregon Legislature’s 2022 investment in equitable access and success for Tribal students.

The grant will pay for most or all public college-related expenses, including tuition, housing, books and other costs not covered by other grants for students who are enrolled members of Oregon’s nine federally recognized Tribes. The grant can be used for undergraduate and graduate study at Oregon public colleges and universities, as well as eligible private nonprofit institutions.

Application deadline is Aug. 1. Students must submit the Oregon Tribal Student Grant application and either a 2022-23 Free Application for Federal Student Aid or Oregon Student Aid Application.

The grant will apply to the estimated average total cost of attendance and grant amounts will vary based on each student’s college choice and enrollment level. Private institution awards will be capped at the average Oregon public university cost of attendance.
