OGO Scholarships & Grants
The Office of Global Opportunities is proud to offer an array of different scholarships to support study abroad and study away programs. These awards are offered twice a year, and applicants should apply based on the term in which their program travels.
- Winter Break, Spring Semester, Spring Break experiences: Deadline typically in early October
- Summer, Fall Semester, and Academic Year experiences: Deadline typically late February/early March
Note: Award notification may take up to 1 month after the application deadline, and students may need to make decisions about their program participation prior to knowing the status of funding from scholarships.
Many OGO scholarships are now part of a common application. Through the OGO Common Application for Scholarships, OHIO students will be able to apply for multiple scholarships in one place. If you have any questions please reach out to email@example.com.
Beyond the scholarships offered by the Office of Global Opportunities and the Ohio International Consortium, you may also want to review our list of additional funding sources.
