Undergraduate Scholarship Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Scholarship Application

Autumn 2015 Application due September 21, 2015,
 before 5 PM.

"Applications for the 2015-16 Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Scholarship (URS) competition are now available below or in the ASC Honors Office, 3180 Smith Lab. To be eligible, you must be enrolled in a major program in the College of Arts and Sciences (please note: Arts majors working on a creative or research project should apply for the Arts Undergraduate Research Scholarship rather than the general URS available through this application). You must also have attained junior standing and meet one of the following criteria: be a potential candidate for graduation with research distinction or with honors research distinction or present other evidence of work on a significant research project.

The scholarships, which range from $500 to approximately $6,000 in the Autumn Semester competition, will be distributed during Spring Semester 2016. The funds automatically go toward the payment of the student recipient's university tuition and fees. (Please note the information about financial aid restrictions which is included on the application materials.) Awards will be announced by late November.

Applicants are required to have an Ohio State faculty adviser with whom they work to devise and refine a proposal, and who will be responsible for overseeing the project once it is underway. "
