Scholarships and Funding


First-year Honors Tutorial College students admitted for fall semester earn the OHIO Premier Scholarship, valued at full in-state tuition and renewable for four years. Out-of-state HTC students may also earn the OHIO Trustee Award, valued at up to $7000 annually. Both of these awards are part of the OHIO Excellence Awards Program, and limitations and restrictions may apply. 

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, HTC awards a variety of endowed scholarships, as well. All HTC applicants are automatically considered for these scholarships, and returning upperclass students are required to fill out the Continuing Student Scholarship Application annually for consideration for upperclass-only awards.

Additional Funding 

Dean's Funding

Dean's funding supports students who study abroad, intern, conduct research, or attend academic conferences. The dean's office invests up to $50,000 annually in students' travel, research, and creative activity expenses. Students are eligible to apply for funding more than once. Current students can find the link to the Dean's Funding Request Form at the bottom of each weekly college newsletter.  

Research Apprenticeships

The college's Honors Research Apprenticeship Program provides paid opportunities for undergraduate students in the Honors Tutorial College to expand their research and creative skills by working on a faculty member’s project. The goal is the creation of a lively intellectual experience that is mutually beneficial.

Research Funding

The Research Division administers several award programs to support research, scholarship, and creative activity of students, such as Student Enhancement Awards, the Provost Undergraduate Research Fund (PURF), the Ohio University Undergraduate Travel Fund, and many others.
