The College of Arts and Sciences provides a variety of donor-supported scholarships and fellowships for CAS students. Many of our departments and programs offer their own major-specific scholarships, as well.
Academic Residential Communities
Living on the UO campus gives you the opportunity to join an academic residential community (ARC). Each ARC is centered around a common theme, and students living in these communities will select roommates from the same community, creating strong bonds with peers who share your interest or identity.
First-Year Interest Groups
First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs) bring first-year students, faculty, and a peer mentor together through a chosen field of study. Students in each FIG take a set of classes together, supplemented by meetings with their peer mentors and associated FIG faculty. Each FIG is unique and tailored to explore an exciting academic theme while helping students to acclimate to campus both academically and socially.
