Additional Scholarships Available for OSU Students Interested in Studying Abroad

Friday, January 19, 2007

OSU’s Study Abroad Office has been able to provide scholarships for all applicants who were previously on the scholarship waiting list thanks to a generous increase in the allocation from the OSU Provost’s Office.

The office is also able to offer additional scholarships for students planning to study abroad for spring break and summer 2007, according to Gerry Auel, coordinator of Study Abroad.  

At least 75 $500 scholarships are still available on a first-come, first-served basis and applications will be accepted in the Study Abroad Office until March 15. A waiting list will be established for additional applications.

Applications are available online at the Study Abroad Office website, through individual OSU college Outreach offices, and from the Study Abroad Office located in 060-G Student Union.   

The Study Abroad Office Scholarship was established in June 2006 in response to a Student Government Association initiative that would have created scholarships for study abroad activities through a minimal increase in student fees. The Provost’s Office originally set aside a $40,000 allocation to meet the anticipated amount the student fees would have generated.

Undergraduate and graduate OSU students in good academic standing are eligible for the scholarships, which are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, with preference given for financial need. Students must provide evidence of an application to a credit-bearing study abroad program and must submit a service proposal for a project or activity to be completed upon their return.

The purpose of the service proposal is to involve students in the effort to internationalize the OSU campus.
Scholarship amounts are $1,000 for full academic year programs, $750 for semester long programs, and $500 for short-term programs. 

To date, more than 100 scholarships have been awarded at OSU for the academic year 2006-07, including full year, fall and spring semester, and short-term programs including winter intersession, spring break and summer.
