OAS Scholarships are awarded for a period of no more than 2 academic years. The renewal for the second academic year is subject to the availability of funds, the good academic performance of the student during the first academic year, and the confirmation by the academic institution that the renewal period is necessary to conclude the program of study for which the scholarship was initially awarded.
