Families of High School Seniors and GED Recipients – it’s not too late to apply for the Oregon Promise grant, a state-funded grant for recent high school graduates and GED® test graduates to pay for tuition at Oregon’s 17 community colleges. Every student gets only one opportunity to apply for the grant, which is during their senior year or immediately after completing their GED.

High school graduates have until Tuesday, June 1 to apply and GED test graduates have until Monday, July 12 to apply. The application process has two steps:

  1. Submit the Oregon Promise Grant Application and
  2. Submit the 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA).

Applying for the grant does not bind a student to attending a particular college; they will only be asked to accept the award with their college if/when they enroll.

Complete details can be found in this press release from the Oregon Higher Education Commission.
