Honors & Scholars Enrichment Grants
Working toward the Honors & Scholars mission of providing students the ability to participate in opportunities that help create a holistic learning experience, the Honors & Scholars Center will award $100,000 annually in student enrichment grants thanks solely to donor contributions. The scholarship amount will range based on the student's proposals, with a maximum award of $3,000, and will be awarded through a competitive application process.
Funds are available to undergraduate Honors and Scholars students of all majors and can be utilized for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to research, creative work and study abroad. Applicants must be current, full-time undergraduate students at the Columbus campus, and be in good standing in the University Honors Program or an Ohio State Scholars Program. The project or experience must enhance a student's academic experience and learning, and take place before they graduate.
The experiences will need to highlight and include the Honors & Scholars G.O.A.L.S
,: Global awareness, Original inquiry, Academic enrichment, Leadership development and Service engagement.
