The Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information listed below.  Applicants are responsibile for determining the requirements, abiding by any rules, and apply by all deadlines.  Every attempt has been made to maintain this list as accurately as possible.  If you find an error or know of any other Animal Sciences or Rangeland Sciences scholarships, please let us know by e-mailing lindsey.hollinger@oregonstate.edu.

Scholarships are sorted by class standing and then alphabetically by the scholarship name. "Any" class standing indicates that both undergraduate students and graduate students can apply for the scholarship.  "UG" refers to undergraduates only, and "GR" is for graduates only.  "F, S, J, or Sr" indicates that at the time of award disbursement, the applicant must be a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior.  "Any" GPA indicates that there is no specified minimum GPA requirement for the scholarship.  Applicants must still maintain the minimum GPA as required by the university.

For any scholarship not linked to a webpage, please visit Dodi Reesman in Withycombe Hall for a paper application.

*For Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences Scholarships, you only need to fill out ONE application in order to be considered for ALL departmental scholarships (except the Dora Krueger Memorial Scholarship which is separate)
