The Oregon Student Assistance Commission has announced the opening of its scholarship application season for students planning to attend college in the fall of 2011. The commission administers more than 400 private scholarships and public grant programs to help students pay for their college education.
Searching and applying for OSAC scholarships by using one application, saves time and is free, according to Vicki Merkel, Scholarship and Access Program Director at OSAC. Students can apply for up to 20 scholarships online from among more than 400 scholarship programs administered by the agency using OSAC’s electronic application known as the eApp, available at GetCollegeFunds.org.”
“With the rising cost to attend college, applying for multiple scholarships on one application helps increase a student’s chances of receiving more than one scholarship to help cover their education expenses,” Merkel said.
