Southern Oregon University has many merit-based and need-based scholarships available!

We are proud to offer the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship to out-of-state residents (incoming freshmen and transfer students) from qualifying states.

The Southern Online Scholarship Application (SOSA) is a general scholarship application for over 80 scholarships. For instructions on completing the SOSA and to see full list of available SOSA scholarships, please visit the SOSA homepage. The deadline for completing the SOSA is March 15th. You must be admitted to complete the SOSA, so if you haven't already, submit your application for admission! You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for SOSA scholarships.
