Our scholarship application for academic year 2012-13 is now live. The application will remain open until March 16th. Current COS students with 28 cumulative OSU credits through winter are eligible to apply.
There has been a change from previous years and now the process is entirely online. There is no paper application. Refer to http://www.science.oregonstate.edu/node/108 for more information and a link to the online application.
