This program provides the Graduate School Dean the authority to award graduate tuition scholarships to eligible students who do not fall into the categories provided by items in the Graduate Tuition Waiver Policy if doing so meets other institutional interests in diversity, enrollment goals, faculty productivity, student retention, or student success.
The intent is to provide the Graduate Dean flexibility in responding to institutional needs for graduate student funding support.
Student must be a degree-seeking graduate student in good academic standing. Other criteria will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Programs with students eligible for the McNair Scholar Incentive must submit requests each academic year.
To request support for the 2021-2022 academic year, please complete the Tuition Support Request survey for each anticipated student. Outside of the McNair Scholar Incentive (only available to continuing students), the survey will prompt you to demonstrate how the award would advance institutional interests in diversity, enrollment goals, faculty productivity, student retention, or student success. Please email questions to [email protected]. The Graduate School will contact you regarding eligibility for the tuition support request.
Determined on a case by case basis, but not to exceed the value of full-time graduate tuition each term of the award period as appropriate for the student's residency status.
Tuition support will be posted directly to the student's account as a scholarship at the beginning of each academic term during the award period, pending the student's eligibility and required enrollment for the term.
Deadline for nomination is Monday, February 15, 2021 at 11:59pm.
Point 7 within the OSU graduate tuition waiver policy for fellowships and targeted non-appointment support.
Please Note: The Graduate School's tuition support program awards are subject to budget availability and must be requested each year by the student's program per Graduate School guidelines.
