Applications are now open for the Undergraduate Research Scholarship and the International Research Grant. These scholarships will award funds of 500-6,000 dollars. The awards are to be used to meet tuition costs, but remaining balances will be issued to the recipients. You do not need to be a member of the Arts and Sciences Honors Program to apply for these scholarships. However, special consideration will be given to applicants who have research distinction or honors research distinction.
Applications are due September 16, so apply now! You can find the applications here.
The Goldwater Scholarship awards 275 scholarships to sophomores and juniors demonstrating potential for success in a research career in the sciences, engineering, or mathematics. Competitive students should have a high GPA (3.8+), research experience, and intend to pursue a PhD and research career. The scholarship awards $7,500 towards undergraduate expenses, and OSU will nominate four applicants for this award.
An information session on the Goldwater Scholarship will be held on October 11th from 4:30-5:30 in Kuhn Honors and Scholars House.

The Ohio State ASC Honors Program would like to remind students of its undergraduate scholarship competitions.
Spring 2017 applications for the Undergraduate Research Scholarship (URS) and the International Research Grant for Undergraduates in the Arts and Sciences are now open and due by Monday, February 6, 2017, before 5:00 PM. Selections will be made by mid-April and funds awarded will automatically go toward recipients’ tuition fees for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Awards range from $500 to $12,000 and any remaining amount available (anything not designated for tuition fees) will be given directly to recipients (provided they have not already exceeded the maximum allowable amount for financial aid).
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.
For more information about these opportunities and to access the online applications, please visit the College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program website here. If you have any other questions, please contact the Arts and Sciences Honors Office at 292-5104.
