Willamette University has partnered with Oregon College Savings Plan to match the college savings of undergraduate students dollar-for-dollar as part of the Oregon Scholars program.

The program allows Oregon College Savings Plan to partner with state colleges and universities to offer incentives to Oregonians saving for college.

Willamette University is the first school to take part in the program. Oregon high school or home school graduates admitted to the Willamette University College of Liberal Arts program will receive a match of their savings in their Oregon College Savings Plan account, up to $5,000 per semester, for up to eight semesters.
