When is the scholarship application deadline?
The deadline for different scholarship applications will vary depending on who is providing the scholarship and how you apply for them. A few important deadlines are listed here:
- Lane Community College Foundation - March 12
- Oregon Student Assistance Commission - March 1 (Early Bird deadline, February 15)
Remember that many scholarships are based partially on financial "need" and require a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to be completed as well. If you need money for college, it is always a good idea to complete the FAFSA, even if you don't think you will qualify for the Pell grant. The FAFSA is available January 1 each year for the following academic year, and to be considered for early awards, the deadline is February 15.
Important upcoming school deadlines and information are updated frequently in the "Announcements!" column of the Student Help page. This page can also be accessed by clicking on the "Help for Students" link on Lane's Home Page.
