Academic Scholarships | Institutional Work Study

Eastern has a variety of scholarships available for academic, leadership and athletic success. Plus, there's only one general scholarship application for all students. That means you'll be considered for all scholarships (Institutional, Foundation, Departmental, etc.) based on different factors such as academic merit, financial need and area of study.

Eastern offers scholarships each year to students who have achieved academic success in high school and while attending Eastern. Funds are made available for the scholarship programs by the Oklahoma Regents for Higher Education and by donors who support Eastern's scholarship program for academic excellence through the Eastern Oklahoma State College Development Foundation.

Unless otherwise noted, scholarship applications (pdf) should be submitted to the Scholarship Office no later than February 21. Scholarship applications will be accepted and reviewed for all new and returning students.

Institutional Work Study

Institutional Work Study, also known as Regular College Employment (RCE), is an institutionally funded financial aid program that provides part-time on-campus employment opportunities for students who are not otherwise eligible for federal work study. Students work around their class schedule and are limited to a certain number of hours each week. Students must also maintain satisfactory academic progress to be allowed to continue working on the Institutional Work Study program. These funds are limited. Wage expenses for these positions are funded through the hiring department’s operating budget.

Students who are accepted into the program must complete necessary paperwork before beginning to work.  It is also mandatory that each student read the Student Employment Manual and sign an Acknowledgement of Responsibilities. Both are found at the links below:
