The Office of Global Opportunities (OSU GO) administers a number of scholarships for students intending to pursue international learning experiences. Scholarships may be used to: (1) offset the additional financial costs of studying abroad, (2) fund travel to pursue educational experiences, (3) conduct research internationally, or (4) reduce the program costs on a sponsored program, among other reasons. Please note that most of the scholarships listed below require that the education abroad program be at least four (4) to ten (10) weeks in length.
To be eligible for any of the following scholarships, you must have started your OSU GO application; however, your application does not need to be fully completed nor accepted by the program as of the OSU GO scholarship application deadline.
The primary OSU GO scholarship application deadline for any of the nine (9) scholarships listed is April 15 and is intended for programs commencing Summer and/or or Fall or for the Academic Year. For programs commencing Winter and/or Spring, OSU GO has a second scholarship application deadline: October 15 which only applies to three (3) of the scholarships listed below (API/OSU, Nicodemus & SIT/OSU). All awards are contingent upon the availability of funds.
