TRIAD Service Scholarship

The TRIAD Service Scholarship was established to further the goal of service as a value worthy of encouragement, acknowledgment, and reward within the OSU student community. This year the award is for $500 and two awards will be given. Consideration will be given to undergraduates who are juniors or seniors during the 2020-21 academic year. Students may be enrolled in Corvallis, Cascades, or Ecampus. Applications will be evaluated based on undergraduate academic record (cumulative GPA, progress toward degree) and the significance of service activities. Service includes any activities assisting organizations that provide value to the community. These activities may be with OSU organizations (academic, social or student) or community organizations in the local area and beyond. Although there is no specific GPA requirement, the GPA will be taken into account in evaluating the application. In the past, successful candidates have had cumulative GPA’s greater than 3.3. Applications are due January 22; contact Gretchen Dursch with questions.

Academic Year 2021-2022 Scholarships

Are you looking for scholarships to help pay for your tuition and fees next school year? This year, you will be able to search for both OSU scholarships and external (non-OSU) scholarships using ScholarDollars. The application is open now and will close February 15, 2021 for the College of Public Health and Human Sciences.  Start your application now (or during the winter break), and don’t wait until the last minute! All submitted CPHHS applications will be carefully reviewed by a committee of CPHHS faculty members across the college, and once your application is submitted, you won’t be able to edit it. Additionally, if you are an AY20-21 CPHHS scholarship recipient, your scholarship award(s) is not renewable, so we encourage everyone to apply for the AY21-22 scholarships. If you have any questions regarding the CPHHS undergraduate scholarships, please feel free to email our scholarship coordinator, Niddy Lindsley.
