The purpose of Laurels funding is to provide financial support to academic units so they may diversify and strengthen their graduate programs. This is achieved by providing tuition support to recruit new graduate students to OSU who support the unit’s specific graduate recruitment and enrollment goals.

Laurels funding is a one-year block grant awarded directly to programs in the form of tuition waivers and/or tuition remissions.

Please reference the Laurels Request for Proposals (RFP) below for more information about the request process. The deadline for proposal submission for the 2020-2021 academic year is November 1, 2019.
