 Scholarships and Awards [Turned off January 8, 2014]

Print Version Print

Scholarship Management System (SMS)


Scholarship Database: https://scholarship.ucsadm.oregonstate.edu/prod/search_schol.php

Phase 1 of a new centralized scholarship database, Scholarship Management System (SMS), is being implemented. The SMS will simplify the way students search for and apply for scholarships and for scholarship administrators to award scholarships in a more efficient manner.

Starting with the 2011–2012 academic year, the SMS will replace the scholarship information currently housed in the university catalog. As part of this transition, it is of the upmost importance that scholarship administrators from across campus continue to review and update their scholarships. The data that currently exists is based on the information provided by scholarship coordinators in each department or school in coordination with the OSU Foundation. It is ultimately the responsibility of the managing entity to ensure that their scholarship data housed in SMS is both up-to-date and accurate.

Scholarship administrators should review the instructions on how to review and add scholarships to the database. Details on the student interface may be found here.

The next phase of SMS will include an online application and awarding tools. This group will launch their online applications beginning in January with other managing entities having the opportunity to develop their applications for the 2012–2013 academic year.

We will work to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to utilize SMS and we will offer training in the future to assist in this process.

For further information, contact Jessica Abblitt, Assistant Director of Scholarships, Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, 541-737-9056, jessica.abblitt@oregonstate.edu.
