What is the process for funding decisions?

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.


When will I be notified?

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


How will I receive the funds?

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. 


What expectations are associated with an award?

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


What are the application deadlines?

  • November 15 ScholarDollars opens
  • March 1 is the deadline for most CPHHS awards, though ScholarDollars will stay open until the scholarship cycle closes on June 30.
