Eligibility, Awarding Timeline, and Student Responsibilities

All EHE students at the Columbus or a regional campus are eligible to apply. Future students should apply too if you anticipate being accepted, registered or enrolled at The Ohio State University.

You must submit an EHE scholarship application by specified deadlines to be considered for any college, school or program award/scholarship. The 2018-19 EHE Scholarship application deadline is February 1, 2018 for graduate and undergraduate students and future graduate students at main and regional campuses.

Eligibility to receive a scholarship may be affected by an applicant's major program, residency, degree sought, financial need or other requirements of a particular scholarship fund.
 

Important Scholarship Information

Submitting an EHE Scholarship application does not mean you have applied for federal aid or any other university awards. Contact the Office of Student Financial Aid for more information about how to apply for these funding sources.

All students are encouraged to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) form, if eligible. Even if you don't plan on using student loans, filing a FASFA form allows us to better understand your financial situation and may help in obtaining scholarship funds.
 

Scholarship Timeline

All applications received by the deadline will be eligible for scholarships.  Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

Scholarship winners are notified via their OSU email address during spring or summer semester. Future students are notified via the email address included in their application.
 

Student Responsibilities

If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you are required to complete an acceptance checklist to receive the funds. This includes:

  1. Formally accepting the award by a specified deadline.
  2. Completing the accepttance process by:
    a. writing a thank you letter to the donor or donor contact affiliated with the scholarship fund;
    b. filling out a student profile information sheet;
    c. submitting a photograph of yourself; and
  3. Attending a scholarship event honoring you and relevant donors, if required.

Receiving your award is contingent on completing the acceptance process on time. Otherwise, your scholarship may be awarded to other students.
