Honors College undergraduates in need of financial support for research expenses or participation in professional conferences can apply for an Honors Experience Scholarship. If you would like to apply for scholarship support for participation in an Honors College international opportunity, complete the application here. Support is also available for payment of fees or other (non tuition) expenses associated with Honors College enrollment through the Honors College Curriculum Access Scholarship.
Applicants must include a detailed budget for how the requested funds will be used, a clear statement of how receipt of the funds will facilitate engagement in the research or conference experience and a description of how the experience will further the applicant's Honors College experience. Only applicants who have submitted a signed thesis proposal to the Honors College are eligible for financial support for research expenses. The maximum scholarship award is $750. All recipients may be asked to participate in HC or OSU marketing activities and some portion of scholarship awards may be held until recipients have provided documentation of their experience for the HC.
In order to be eligible for these scholarships and grants, students must be enrolled and in good standing with the Honors College through the time of the experience. Awards are competitive and are evaluated based on the impact of the funds and the proposed experience on applicants’ long-term plans and educational goals. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate both financial need and a strong commitment to completing their Honors Baccalaureate degree requirements and students who have not previously received an Honors College experiential learning award. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, pending availability of funds.
