Southern Oregon University

Southern Oregon University has many merit-based and need-based scholarships available. Some scholarships are awarded based on the information provided in your application for admission. However, many of our scholarships require additional information from you to be considered for an award.  You will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Southern Online Scholarship Application (SOSA).


Southern Online Scholarship Application (SOSA)

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 1st. You must be admitted to SOU by February 15th to complete the SOSA, so if you haven't already, submit your application for admission!

*Note: You must use your student login to access the SOSA. If you are a new student follow this link for instructions on activating your student account before you access the SOSA.
