Scholarships and Awards

Each year the department awards undergraduate scholarships, with particular emphasis on enabling students to study abroad in Germany and Scandinavia. Please see our Study Abroad page for details on how to apply for these scholarships.

At our annual Spring Celebration in May, we offer scholarship awards on the basis of academic merit and financial need. For need-based scholarships, students must have an up-to-date FAFSA on file at the UO Financial Aid Office.
