The School of Writing, Literature, and Film at Oregon State University recognizes the challenges that students face in paying for their college education.  To offset some of these costs, we have actively pursued donors for tuition scholarships for as many students as possible, and you can find information about these awards below.  The application deadline for these awards is typically mid-April.

We have also instituted a 4-year graduation guarantee to ensure that our students graduate into successful careers in a timely fashion.

We encourage all interested applicants to consult the Oregon State Financial Aid website: https://financialaid.oregonstate.edu/application-and-processing

Many of our students have found jobs at Oregon State through the Office of Human Resources: https://hr.oregonstate.edu/student-employment.

We are also committed to keeping textbook costs for our courses low, and when possible, we have participated in the Open Textbook Initiative at Oregon State.

For further instructions on applying for any of these scholarships, please contact our academic advisor Liddy Detar.
