Initiatives

The Urban Scholars and Appalachian Scholars Program

Ohio University’s Urban Scholars and Appalachian Scholars programs were created to increase the diversity of the student population and enhance opportunities for high-achieving students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to obtain a college education. The Urban Scholars Program was established in 2004 and the Appalachian Scholars Program was established in 2005. These programs provide academically gifted students from disproportionately represented backgrounds with full-tuition scholarships as well as support for textbooks and professional development opportunities. The Urban Scholars Program focuses on students from major metropolitan areas, while the Appalachian Scholars Program selects students from 29 Appalachian counties in Ohio.

Visit the Office for Multicultural Student Access and Retention for information about these and other scholarship opportunities supporting OHIO’s diversity initiatives.
