External Scholarship Opportunities

There are several scholarship opportunities available for you that are outside of the College of Education and Human Ecology. While we, nor The Ohio State University, are not responsible for their administration, application process or awarding of funds, it is important for you to know about other avenues for scholarships relevant to your major.

If you decide to apply for any scholarship outside of the college or OSU, it is your responsibility to work with the scholarship organization to know the application procedures, award amounts and award process.

Additionally, applying for external scholarships may have risks and you inherit those risks associated with the application process. Ohio State or the College of Education and Human Ecology are not liable for any issues, concerns or disputes that occur.
