Outside scholarship checks need to include the students complete name, OSU ID number, donor’s contact information and donor’s disbursement instructions. Checks are made out to Oregon State University and mailed to:

Oregon State University                                                 
Attn: Outside Scholarships
PO Box 1086
Corvallis, OR  97339-1086

The donor informs the student when the scholarship check will be mailed and how it will be distributed. The Student Accounts Office verifies eligibility requirements as defined in the award letter. 

If the donor does not provide specific disbursement instructions, it is OSU policy to divide a scholarship check of $3,000.00 of more equally between the three academic terms. Checks for less than $3000.00 will be disbursed to the current term unless noted otherwise by the donor.

It is the student’s responsibility to report all outside scholarships to the Financial Aid Office through their Financial Aid portal.
