The Oregon Opportunity Grant (OOG) is Oregon's largest state-funded need-based grant program for students planning to go to college. Opportunity Grants are funded primarily by Oregon taxpayers. More than 34,000 students received OOG awards totaling almost $55 million in the 2013-14 academic year. In 2014-15, OSAC anticipates disbursing more than $58 million to approximately 35,000 students.
OSAC encourages applicants to submit their 2015 FAFSAs as soon after January 1st as possible to ensure priority consideration for a grant. OSAC will make awards for 2015-16 until funds are depleted, which has occurred around February 1 the last several years, Instead of waiting until after filing 2014 tax returns to submit a FAFSA, students (and parents) may use 2013 returns to estimate 2014 taxes. They must update their FAFSA information after filing taxes by using the Data Retrieval Tool to import data directly from the IRS or by manually entering data from their tax forms.
