Oregon College of Art and Craft recognizes that a high quality, private college education is increasingly falling out of reach for deserving students and families. In keeping with our values to maintain higher education access and equity, we are pleased to announce three new full ride scholarships that make these aspirations a reality for students. These new awards are additional to OCAC’s ongoing commitment to provide financial support to all eligible students. In 2016, OCAC gift aid for our incoming class averaged over $12,000 per student. We hope this initiative inspires other commitments to higher education, creating pathways for the next generation of creative makers and problem solvers.
