Established in 2016 by the Office of International Affairs in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the OH-IO Education Abroad Scholarship supports underrepresented and diverse student access to Ohio State education abroad programs. The inaugural scholarship competition resulted in 11 first and second year students from the Young Scholars Program being selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship to apply toward an Ohio State education abroad program of their choice.
The Office of International Affairs recently recognized the 2016-2017 recipients of the Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship at the annual Wolfe Luncheon. President Michael V. Drake, MD, other university leaders, the Wolfe family and representatives of The Dispatch Printing Company and the Wolfe Foundation, congratulated the 30 recipients. Students were awarded a $2,500 scholarship to help fund their individual long-term study abroad programs.
The Office of International Affairs, the Graduate School and the Undergraduate Fellowship Office have combined their efforts to plan a week full of events acknowledging past Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays recipients; hosting workshops, information sessions and open houses; and informing faculty, undergraduate and graduate students about the opportunities available through the Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays programs. All faculty, staff and students are welcome to participate in any of the Fulbright Week sessions held during the week of April 17 - 21, 2017.
