Apply to the Educational Opportunities Program!

who we support

If you identify as an underrepresented student on campus, consider applying to EOP. We support students including, but not limited to:

  • Students of color
  • Low-income students
  • First-generation in college (neither parent graduated)
  • Undocumented or DACAmented students

In addition to our key services, EOP proudly supports our students in a variety of other ways including workshops, career support, and involvement in other opportunities.

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation, or LSAMP, also supports underrepresented students at OSU and provides a Summer Scholars Bridge Program to assist new students in the transition to OSU. Check out their program and resources at their website for more information and a link to their application to join the Summer Scholars Bridge Program. Students may belong to both EOP and LSAMP. 

EOP application process

Students may apply for EOP at any time prior or during their enrollment at the OSU Corvallis campus, however, students just starting college and those with multiple needs and qualifying factors have higher priority in the admissions process.You are welcome and encouraged to check in on your application by calling the main office at 541-737-3628 or contacting Raina Martinez at any time.

New OSU students applying prior to OSU enrollment:

Eligible fall term OSU admits should receive recruitment messages with EOP application instructions via Beaver Basecamp in spring. Those admitted to OSU in winter or spring terms should contact Raina Martinez for application instructions.

Current and returning OSU students:

Admission to EOP is typically considered for the term after the application is submitted, with most current or returning OSU students joining EOP in winter and spring terms. Space is limited each fall to students just starting college who will be attending our Summer Bridge program. Contact Raina Martinez for more information about how and when to apply for admission to EOP.
