The OHIO Excellence Awards program is designed to recognize the resilience, accomplishments, and diverse contributions of the fall 2023 entering first-year class. The new and expanded program underscores OHIO's commitment to support our students from admission through graduation and beyond. The application for admission serves as the application for the merit-based awards.
Need another reason to complete the FAFSA? Students whose 2023-24 FAFSA results are received by January 15, 2023, will be considered for the OHIO Admission Promise Award. Students do not need to have financial need to qualify.
