2024 Ohio State University International Student Grant for International Students

The Office of International Affairs is pleased to make available partial tuition grants each semester to international students at The Ohio State University. These grants are intended to help international students who are within one semester of graduation and who have demonstrated financial need to complete their degrees. There is a limit of one grant award per student per degree level. Therefore, it is not recommended to apply within the first academic year unless there is an emergency. Applicants will be notified by email regarding the grant committee’s decision. All decisions are final. Grants will be deposited directly into the student’s account at Fees and Deposits.

The Office of International Affairs’ grant funds are limited and not intended to serve as full funding.

Awards may supplement a student’s finances but will not fully cover tuition and fees. You may request any amount in your grant application, but the Office of International Affairs may not be able to fully meet that request.

Please note that if it is not your final semester, you may be required to complete a Financial Literacy course before receiving any possible awards.

There is a limit of one grant award per degree level. Applicants will be notified by email regarding the grant committee’s decision. All decisions are final. Grants will be deposited directly into students’ accounts under Fees and Deposits.
