OSU's colleges and departments offer donor-funded scholarship opportunities to students who are currently enrolled, or plan to enroll (incoming freshmen or new transfers), in an academic program within their college or department.   OSU's colleges and departments typically award over $10 million dollars in donor-funded scholarships to thousands of students each year!

Most colleges and departments accept applications for these scholarship awards through OSU's scholarship management system, OSU ScholarDollars.  ScholarDollars begins accepting applications on November 1st each year.  Most scholarships have an application deadline on or after February 15th, but individual deadlines may vary.  Submit your application before February 15th to maximize your scholarship opportunities!
