Education Abroad Grants and Scholarships

Need funding support? There are several different ways that EHE and the university can help support your education abroad experience:

Program Subsidies

All EHE faculty-led education abroad programs are significantly subsidized by the college. This means that program fees associated with the education abroad experience are heavily discounted. Students do not need a special application as these subsides are built directly into the advertised program fee for each program. In 2018-19, faculty-led study abroad course subsidies totaled approximately $100,000.

Regional campus EHE students may be eligible for additional funding opportunities from their campus.

Global Option in Education and Human Ecology

The Global Option is a designation on a student’s transcript recognizing their international experiences during their time at Ohio State. To obtain this designation, students must complete a series of undergraduate courses and experiences with global components.

The Global Option, which can be incorporated into most EHE programs of study at any of our five campuses, is designed to be completed without adding significant time to graduation.
