Please find the applications for the Undergraduate Research Scholarship (URS) and the International Research Grant for Undergraduates in the Arts and Sciences on our web site at: http://aschonors.osu.edu/opportunities/scholarships/undergrad
Students will compete for scholarships awarded in amounts ranging from $500 to $6,000. University regulations require that the funds be used to meet tuition and fee expenses, with any remaining amount available directly to recipients (provided they have not already exceeded the maximum allowable amount for financial aid).
The deadline for applications and project advisor recommendations is Monday, September 21, and selections will be made by late November. The Honors Committee does not require that applicants be members of the Arts and Sciences Honors Program; however, the committee generally gives preference to students who are candidates for graduation with research distinction or with honors research distinction, because they have demonstrated the sort of academic ability and commitment which indicates the likelihood of success in completing a major research project. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Arts and Sciences Honors Office at 292-5104.
