Scholarships + Financial Aid


From loans to scholarships to employment opportunities, 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.

All new students are automatically considered for scholarship awards. The transformational $124 million estate gift in 2008 from our namesakes, Fritz, B.S.E.E. ’42, H.O.N. ’75, and Dolores Russ, created several unique opportunities, including the Russ Vision Scholarship, which is available to select students, and the OHIO Russ Impact Scholarship, a full-tuition OHIO signature award for highest-achieving eligible OHIO Signature Scholars who are admitted to and enroll in a Russ College degree program.

Special funds also were established 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, we invite you to apply for these Russ Vision Funds, allotted for student organizations and leadership, competition teams, undergraduate research experiences, and international study.

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