Applying for Scholarships

Applying for Scholarships

Submit one application and be considered for more than 250 scholarships.

Spend a couple of hours to complete your application and the reward could get you $1,000 to as much as $7,000 or more toward paying your tuition next year. We designate some scholarships for students with the highest levels of financial need.

When to apply for scholarships?

The deadline for applications is February 15 and the College announces scholarship awards in early May for the following academic year. Awards vary from year to year since they are based on available funds.

College of Science scholarships

Every year, College of Science students benefit from hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarship awards. These awards included support from the University, the College of Science and our Departments — and we continue to grow our scholarships thanks to generous alumni and friends. As a result, among all colleges at the University, ours has been able to offer the second-highest total amount of scholarship dollars to students.

Scholarships can make a true impact in the lives of our students, providing opportunities to pursue their academic goals. Wondering what that could look like? Check out some stories from our recent scholarship recipients!

Summer research scholarships

Many students spend their summers doing transformative research with funding from our SURE Science Program. The College offers students summer scholarships to conduct research to enhance their classroom learning as part of SURE Science.

LURE paid research

You can also apply for paid undergraduate research opportunities that run during the school year, working right alongside an OSU faculty mentor. The Launching Undergraduate Research Experiences, or LURE Science, scholarship offers awardees the opportunity to contribute to impactful research projects.
