At OSU, your admissions application becomes your scholarship application once you are admitted. This means there are no additional steps to take once you have applied for admission and filed your FAFSA.

Scholarships are typically awarded on academic merit and do not have to be repaid. OSU offers three types of scholarships: University Assured, Partnered and University Competitive. To learn about these scholarships, please see the video below.
