Scholarships + Financial Aid


From loans to scholarships, the Russ College is committed to helping you find ways to make your education affordable. We prioritize investing in students, so we offer scholarships, development funds, and research stipends, and we publicize outside funding sources all year long.

When the Russ College received the transformational $124 million estate gift in 2008 from our namesakes, Fritz and Dolores Russ, funds were set aside to provides financial support to help students develop into meta-engineers – highly skilled but well-rounded professionals with leadership and professional attributes that equip them to go out into the world and create for good. As a Russ College student, you’re invited to apply for Russ Vision Funds allotted for:

Student organizations and leadership (.doc)

Competition teams (.doc)

Summer research experiences (.doc)

All new students are automatically considered for scholarship awards.  Your application for admission is also your application for scholarships.  The Ohio Signature Awards Program  provides scholarships to many high-ability first-year students based upon their high school grades, ACT or SAT scores, and other factors.  In addition, Russ College awards the Russ Vision Scholarship to many of these same students.  Cutler Scholarships are awarded to a very select group of outstanding students.

Continuing students who wish to be considered for scholarships based upon their accomplishments as students at Ohio University should apply online each winter starting at This single application allows your consideration for all scholarships administered by Ohio University.

Once you're in Athens, Russ College Career Services can help you find a co-op or internship to provide supplemental income and experience while you earn academic credit and connect you to work-study opportunities on campus.
