New Co-Curricular program for Promising Scholar Recipients!

This fall, the University of Oregon enrolled 46 Promising Scholars, more than double the number enrolled last year.  The purpose of the Promising Scholar Awards is to recruit outstanding new graduate students from diverse backgrounds and experiences in order to advance the inclusive excellence of graduate programs and the institution as a whole. Specifically, Promising Scholars are master’s and doctoral students who are: from underrepresented populations, women pursuing degrees in STEM fields in which women are underrepresented, or economically disadvantaged students.

This year, we are excited to create a year-long program that will provide PSA recipients with academic support, connections with other recipients from diverse disciplines, and professional development opportunities. Learn more about this program and the incoming cohort throughout the year.


Please note: Graduate students are not eligible to apply for this award as it is a recruitment award meant to enhance the diversity of incoming, newly admitted graduate students. The nomination process occurs in winter as part of the UO Admissions application process. It is the responsbility of UO departments and programs to nominate potential incoming graduate students for the Promising Scholar Award.
