Student Scholarships

Motivated students will go to great lengths to secure a top-notch education.

For every inventive risk-taker, every hard-driving self-starter on our campus, there’s a story of sacrifice. In small doses, sacrifice has value. But we need to keep financial burdens low if we mean to prepare graduates for unfettered futures and meet the scholarship giving opportunities needed most as outlined by President Hargis.

With increased undergraduate and graduate scholarship funding, we can help students focus on what they’ll get out of OSU—and what they’ll eventually give back.
