Graduate Fellowships

College of Public Health and Human Sciences

 OSU ScholarDollars

The ScholarDollars application (where you may apply for awards to be distributed in the 2023-2024 academic year) is now open and accepting applications. Once you login with your ONID credentials, please remember to fill out the general application and the CPHHS application (both within ScholarDollars). The system will use your provided answers, as well as your student record, to automatically match you to awards you qualify for university-wide (not just CPHHS awards).
Submit your OSU ScholarDollars application between November 1, 2022, and March 15, 2023, to maximize the number of scholarships for which you will be considered. Most OSU scholarships have a deadline on or after February 15, 2023, but specific deadlines may vary. The CPHHS graduate awards handled in this college have a deadline of March 31, 2023.

Graduate Fellowships FAQ

A committee of faculty from across the college reviews the applications, convenes to discuss the merits of different cases, and makes final award decisions. A variety of factors are considered to identify the most deserving students, and the eligibility criteria can vary depending on the intent of a given scholarship or fellowship.

All applications are carefully reviewed, although not all applications are funded. The process is very competitive, so take the time to thoughtfully prepare your application materials. You are encouraged to apply again even if you are not funded in a given year as in the future you will have more experiences to report and improved skills to better present your case.

If you are selected for an award, an award letter will be sent to you via ScholarDollars to your electronic ONID account. You will need to accept the award in Banner in order to receive any money. Failure to accept the award and complete the post-award questions by the deadline stipulated can result in you forfeiting the money that will be re-distributed to other applicants. Therefore, it is essential that you monitor your ONID account and respond in a timely fashion.

Award winners are notified through ScholarDollars towards the middle of spring term of the year applications are due.

Funds will be deposited directly into your OSU student account. The money will be applied to any outstanding debt in those cases where students owe money to OSU. In rare cases such as with travel grants, students may be reimbursed for funds.

Your scholarship will be awarded in three segments, one-third each term for Fall, Winter, and Spring. You must be enrolled in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences and registered for a minimum of 12 credits per term to continue receiving the scholarship. If you change your major and/or option during the academic year, it may jeopardize your eligibility for an award. Exceptions to this agreement must be requested in writing and submitted to the Executive Assistant, Dean’s Office.

You will be prompted to complete post-award acceptance questions and provide a thank you letter in ScholarDollars.

November 1 ScholarDollars opens
