Scholarships for Current Undergraduate Students
Continuing and readmitted students will automatically be considered for general University scholarships through the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid; no separate application is required.
- Some awards are based primarily on academic excellence, while others are based on a combination of academic excellence and demonstrated financial need. Since a number of these awards are based on demonstrated financial need, you are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1 as possible each year.
We typically award scholarships in late spring for the upcoming academic year and will notify recipients at the OSU e-mail address.
Eligibility: To be considered for these scholarship programs, you must be classified as a sophomore, junior, or senior (have successfully completed a total of at least 28 hours by the end of the spring semester) and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. These scholarships are NOT available for the summer term.
College & Department Scholarship Applications
Check with your college and academic department periodically to inquire about scholarships they may offer. The application deadlines for these college and departmental awards vary by college, so check with yours to see what deadline you must meet.
Non-OSU Scholarship Applications
Check the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid web site periodically to learn about Outside (non-OSU) scholarships offered by professional organizations, foundations, and corporations for which you may be eligible.
