University scholarship opportunities

Funds for academically talented and creatively gifted students are offered by Ohio University through a variety of scholarships. The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships also offers awards with special criteria. Your freshman admissions application serves as your application for most University scholarships.


College of Fine Arts/School of Dance scholarship opportunities

The College of Fine Arts and the School of Dance offer scholarships for incoming students.

Fine Arts Talent Award (FATA)

The Fine Arts Talent Award (FATA) is awarded to talented Dance students. If awarded the FATA, it is renewable for four years as long as the student maintains a 3.0 GPA in the major and enrolls for 15 credit hours per semester. The audition for the Dance major is also the audition for talent-based scholarships.

Dean's Scholarships

The Dean’s Scholarships are based on criteria established by the University Scholarship Committee (USC). These criteria are supplemented with written recommendations of the School of Dance faculty. The faculty takes into consideration factors beyond GPA and hours earned such as: talent, achievement and service. However, the final determination of an award is made by the University Scholarship Committee.

Commitment to non-discrimination

Ohio University operates on a holistic, selective review and looks for evidence of academic preparation when reviewing applications for admission. Additionally, because the School of Art + Design considers artistic talent in the review process, students pursuing certain academic programs must interview, and/or submit additional materials for admission and scholarship consideration. Ohio University and the School of Art + Design do not discriminate against any applicants because of race, color, religion, age, national origin, ethnicity, national ancestry, sex, pregnancy, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, military service or veteran status, mental or physical disability, or genetic information.
