The Black United Fund of Oregon (BUF) offers two different types of scholarships for students ranging from high school seniors to undergraduate college students. The following two categories represent how BUF defines and breakups the scholarship application process: 

  • Achieving College Competency and Success for Students (ACCESS) Scholarship Application 
  • Black United Fund of Oregon (BUF) Scholarship Application

ACHIEVING COLLEGE COMPETENCY AND SUCCESS FOR STUDENTS (ACCESS) SCHOLARSHIPS

ACCESS Scholarships are applied for and awarded based on school selection. Award amounts vary depending on the school scholarship being applied for. Applicants can apply for multiple ACCESS scholarships, or for just one. Students may be offered multiple ACCESS scholarships, but can only select one scholarship. ACCESS scholarship funds are held by the individual institutions so the funds are non-transferable. There are no income restrictions for ACCESS Scholarships. Scholarship amounts and selection criteria are defined below:
