How to Apply
To compete for these scholarships prospective freshmen and transfer students need to complete an Admissions Application.
When should you apply?
For the summer or fall entry term, apply by November 1 to receive early scholarship and financial aid notification and to compete for the highest level academic awards. You must submit all application materials by February 1 for full scholarship consideration.
For the spring entry term, all application materials must be submitted by October 15 for priority consideration. Materials will be accepted through the Friday before the first day of spring semester classes for final consideration.
How will I be notified about an award?
Each unit is responsible for contacting students about their scholarship. Most often, students are only contacted if they are awarded a scholarship. Students may use their O-key account to login to their Student Information System (SIS) to view awards.
Tips for assuring your application gets sent to the college and major in which you are interested:
All students, despite their major interest, who complete the OSU Admission Application will be eligible to compete for University-wide scholarships including tuition wavier scholarships, President's Leadership Council Scholarships and numerous other scholarships.
To ensure a student is considered for scholarships from CASNR and it's departments, he or she needs to choose a program of study (major) that is offered through CASNR.
