In recognition of outstanding academic achievements, the university offers several merit scholarships for incoming freshmen entering the university fall semester. For most awards, they consider academic achievement only, while for others financial need is also considered. International freshmen are not eligible for merit scholarships.
The Land Grant Opportunity Scholarship is awarded to students who are Pell-eligible and demonstrate academic merit. 176 Ohio students are awarded each year, with an attempt made to award two students from each county.
Full cost of attendance.
Ohio residents who apply to the university and complete the FAFSA will automatically be considered. The Ohio State University strongly recommends that applicants meet the November 1 early action deadline.
