Setting Students Up for a Lifetime Success
From the moment they set foot on campus until the day they receive their diplomas, PathwayOregon scholars receive specialized, one-on-one support from a team of advisors who help with everything from picking a major to managing personal finances.
Opening UO to More Oregonians
Nearly 60 percent of PathwayOregon scholars are first-generation college students, about half are students of color, and more than 10 percent come from rural backgrounds. PathwayOregon eligibility is considered as part of the University of Oregon application process. Selection criteria include:
- Oregon residency
- Graduation from an Oregon high school in the last two years
- Admission as a first-time freshman
- Eligible for the Federal Pell Grant
- A 3.40/4.00 high school GPA
Students who earn less than a 3.40 high school GPA but meet all other program eligibility criteria may be considered when space and funding allow.
Like its students, the PathwayOregon program depends on donor generosity to continue to grow and thrive. Please consider a gift in support of this remarkable scholarship program and make Oregon's future brighter today.
