The Apex Scholarship awards Oregon residents $8,000 total - $2,000 per year for four years, and due to the difference in tuition, non-resident residents will receive $30,000 total - $7,500 per year for four years (annual award is split evenly over fall, winter & spring terms). The Apex Scholarship can be combined with other UO scholarships, including the Presidential, Diversity Excellence, and General University Scholarships. The Apex Scholarship may not be combined with the Summit Scholarship or the UO Excellence Scholarship. Students enrolled in five-year degree programs will receive the Apex Scholarship for a fifth year. These degrees include BLA (Landscape Architecture), BIARC (Interior Architecture), and BARCH (Architecture).
