There are many options for funding a global opportunity, including your OHIO scholarships and financial aid.

The list below includes scholarships specifically meant for global opportunities, including study abroad and study away programs. 

We encourage you to utilize the filter feature of this table to narrow down which scholarships you may be eligible for based on your Class Rank, GPA, Residency, and Program Location. You are also able to sort this chart by clicking on the header for any of the columns.

  • Class Rank - Freshman (Fresh.), Sophomore (Soph.), Junior (Jr.), Senior (Sr.), Grad (Graduate and HCOM students)
  • GPA - If a scholarship/grant has a minimum GPA it is listed in this chart.
  • Residency - United States Citizen (US), Permanent Resident (Perm Res), International Students (Int'l)
  • Program Location - Domestic (Programs based in the United States), International (Programs based abroad)
  • Deadline - The deadline for the current application cycle. 

For more information on a specific scholarship or grant, please select the scholarship's name to navigate to it's website. 

Many OGO scholarships are now part of a common application. Through the OGO Common Application for Scholarships, OHIO students will be able to apply for multiple scholarships in one place. For an overview of the questions in the application system, please click here. If you have any questions please reach out to global.opportunities@ohio.edu or schedule a drop in appointment here.

Beyond the scholarships offered by the Office of Global Opportunities and the Ohio International Consortium, you may also want to review our list of additional funding sources. This includes scholarships administered by other Ohio University Offices, Affiliates, Civic Organizations, Foundations, and Institutions, as well as, Nationally Competitive International Scholarships.

Did you know? You don't have to be accepted on a program to apply for an OGO scholarship! You will want to have a program identified, but you can apply for funding regardless of where you are at in the program's application process.
