Scholarships & Tuition Remission Awards

Department of Architecture Award Policies and Procedures

The majority of scholarship assistance available for architecture and interior architecture students is made possible by the generosity of alumni and friends of the department. Numerous scholarships are available, from assistance that is specific to educationally-related travel and research to broad, general support for academic expenses. Scholarships in the department are competitive and recipients are chosen based on demonstrated academic merit and, in the case of many scholarships, financial need, as determined by federal policies and the UO Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarship.

Most scholarship opportunities in this department have been directed to assist returning architecture and interior architecture students. A newly admitted architecture or interior architecture student may become eligible to apply for a departmental scholarship after he or she has enrolled and attended classes. All departmental scholarships and awards are administered by the department’s Scholarships and Awards Committee.

Although the number of available scholarships for application does fluctuate from year to year, on average more than 30 are offered, some of which provide assistance to multiple students. Award amounts typically range from $500 to $5,000 and are distributed either spring quarter of the current academic year or fall quarter of the following academic year.

Department of Architecture Student Financial Assistance Fund

The Department of Architecture Student Financial Assistance Fund can be applied for at any point in the year. Please contact the Department at archinfo@uoregon.edu for information.

The Department of Architecture Student Financial Assistance Fund is intended to help meet the financial needs of architecture and interior architecture students who encounter professional/educational opportunities during their degree program, such as attending conferences, workshops, participating in special projects, etc.

Normal living expenses such as rent, car repairs, childcare, utilities, taxes, insurance, and pet-related expenses are generally not covered by this fund.

Students may apply at anytime during the year for approval of funds. Funds are distributed within an average range of $200 to $500, although applications for requests in excess of $500 may be considered if there are special circumstances.

Eligible students must have submitted an application to FAFSA and be qualified for financial aid.


Tuition Remission Awards (Scholarships)

Tuition remission support (scholarships) awarded at the time of admission provides financial support that is prorated per term beginning with the first term of admittance. The pro-rated amount reduces the amount of tuition in the term the tuition is billed. Summer admits can expect to see their tuition remission award beginning with their first term of admittance through spring term of the following academic year (Summer 2017, Fall 2017, Winter 2018 and Spring 2018). Fall admits can expect to see their tuition remission award beginning with their first term of admittance through spring term of the following academic year (Fall 2017, Winter 2018, Spring 2018).

Tuition remission awards (scholarships) will only be applied to terms that students are enrolled at the UO as Architecture or Interior Architecture majors. Students are not eligible to receive their tuition remission awards when they are not enrolled (on-leave, withdrawn from the program, etc.). Students who are awarded a tuition remission award are expected to make satisfactory academic progress and to be in good academic standing with the UO Graduate School and the UO Department of Architecture. This annual award will be renewed in the same amount for the second year of the program, assuming strong academic performance on your part and active contributions to your cohort and center.

Students with a GE appointment who receive a GE tuition remission may only receive the GE remission and stipend for the term(s) of the GE appointment(s). Students who receive the Department of Architecture tuition remission award at the time of admission and later receive a GE appointment, will not receive the Department of Architecture tuition remission for the term(s) of the GE appointment(s).  The remission/stipend may not be applied to any other academic term and there is no cash-out option available.

It is the student’s responsibility to report the awarding and duration of any GE position to the Department of Architecture at the time it is awarded. Any changes to the timing or program will result in a re-evaluation of tuition remission awards and may affect your tuition award amount. Withdrawing from the program at any time during the academic year will result in the loss of a tuition remission award.

Students who defer admission and apply to the program the following year will not have their departmental tuition remission award (scholarship) carried forward to future Architecture/Interior Architecture applications.
