Summit Scholarships reward scholars for reaching the peak of high school achievement. You'll scale even greater heights as you join the UO's tradition of excellence.
The Summit Scholarship awards Oregon top scholars $16,000 over four years - $4,000 per year. Due to the difference in tuition, out-of-state top scholars will receive $40,000 over four years - $10,000 per year. The Summit Scholarship can be combined with other UO scholarships, including the Presidential, Diversity Excellence, and General University Scholarships. Summit Scholarships may not be combined with the Apex Scholarship or UO Excellence Scholarship. Students enrolled in five-year degree programs will receive the Summit Scholarship for a fifth year. These degrees include BLA (Landscape Architecture), BIARC (Interior Architecture), and BARCH (Architecture).
You must enroll at the UO in the fall term of your freshman year and you must enroll in 12 University of Oregon credits each term to receive this award.
Summit Scholarships are awarded to incoming freshman based on these criteria:
- Minimum 3.90 high school GPA on a 4.00 scale
- Have not attended another college after high school graduation
