Grants and Scholarships

International Student Grant

The Office of International Affairs (OIA) awards partial tuition grants each semester to international students at The Ohio State University. These grants are intended to help international students who are within two semesters of graduation and who have demonstrated financial need to complete their degrees.

There is a limit of one grant award per degree level. Applicants will be notified by email regarding the grant committee’s decision. All decisions are final. Grants will be deposited directly into students' accounts under Fees and Deposits.


You must be a non-immigrant international student (F-1 or J-1 status) currently enrolled in a degree-granting program and be within one semester of graduation. You must demonstrate financial need to complete your current degree and have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 (for undergraduates) or 3.0 (for graduates). You must also have never received an OIA grant before at your current degree level.
