This program provides graduate tuition scholarships to graduate fellows whose stipends are paid by an eligible unit via approved OSU Foundation funds dedicated to graduate fellowships and which provide a stipend value equivalent to that provided by at least a .49 FTE graduate assistantship as specified by the minimum recommended stipend guidelines established by the Graduate School.

The intent of this program is to maximize the value of institutional graduate fellowships by providing accompanying tuition scholarships.


To be eligible for tuition scholarship support, a student must qualify for appointment as a Graduate Fellow at OSU.  See Graduate Fellow eligibility requirements here:
