Following is an announcement from the ASC Honors Program for a scholarship competition in the spring semester. Note that non-Honors students are also eligible. The application deadline is February 8. You should work with a faculty member to define a project that will be described in the application. The most likely winners will be those students who will graduate in Spring 2017 or later.
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 $12,000. 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 February 8, and selections will be made by mid-April. 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.
