In addition to experiencing the challenging coursework and opportunities to apply their education outside of the classroom through the OHIO Honors Program, participants also have the opportunity to be considered for a variety of OHIO Honors-designated programs:
A designated OHIO Honors program, Copeland Scholars offers students in the College of Business opportunities to collaborate with other high-achieving students and engage with faculty and business leaders. By working in teams, Copeland Scholars emulate an industry approach to solving real business problems. Curricular and co-curricular experiences recognized by the program also count toward OHIO Honors requirements and lead to transcript designation.
Connavino Honors Program
Teacher education students in the Connavino Honors Program, a designated OHIO Honors program, complete rigorous, inquiry-based courses and participate in a collaborative research project that addresses contemporary issues in education.
Scripps Innovation Scholars
An OHIO Honors-designated program, Scripps Innovation Scholars gives bold, curious problem-solvers in Scripps College of Communication the chance to unleash their innovative spirit and make a positive change on the world.
Cutler Scholars Program
The Cutler Scholars Program, also an OHIO Honors-designated program, is a merit scholarship program for ethically and intellectually engaged students in specific disciplines or from specific geographies. Not only academically motivated, Cutler Scholars are driven to explore how their academic interests could make a positive impact on their communities.
Students in the Templeton, Rankin, Urban and Appalachian Scholars Programs receive generous scholarship support and dedicated academic advising from staff in the Office of Multicultural Access and Student Retention. They form a collaborative community that enriches their academic experience at OHIO.
The Center for Entrepreneurship
The Center for Entrepreneurship offers an OHIO Honors Program track for students outside the College of Business who are interested in pursuing entrepreneurship. The Center is interested in applicants who have an entrepreneurial mindset and are seeking opportunities to solve problems with creativity and tenacity while leveraging resources and tolerating the possibility that you might not succeed. Students who complete the entrepreneurship track of the OHIO Honors Program will also earn an entrepreneurship certificate.
