Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship

The Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship was established September 1, 1999 to enhance the educational experience of Ohio State students, by providing financial support to participants in Ohio State approved summer, semester or academic year study abroad programs. Programs that occur during winter break or spring break are not eligible. Up to 30 scholarships, in the amount of $2,500 each, will be awarded during the 2018-2019 academic year. Students may receive the Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship one time only. There is one Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship competition each academic year.

  • The Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship application deadline for students who are planning on studying abroad during summer 2019, autumn (only) 2019, spring 2020 and academic year 2019-2020 is Monday, January 14, 2019 at 5 p.m.


Strong preference will be given to students who have limited or no international travel experience prior to participating in the study abroad program referenced in this application.

Scholarships will be awarded to full-time undergraduate students attending The Ohio State University in a degree-granting program. Criteria for consideration include:

  • Being an Ohio resident, who has graduated from an Ohio high school
  • Having a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00
  • Sophomore, junior or senior standing at the time of the study abroad program
  • Active application to an Ohio State approved summer 2019, autumn semester 2019, spring semester 2020 or academic year 2019-2020 study abroad program

Students must have submitted a complete Education Abroad Application for an Ohio State approved study abroad program to the Office of International Affairs prior to the Wolfe Scholarship application deadline. Students may apply to the Wolfe Scholarship while they are awaiting program application results. However, if the student is selected to receive the Wolfe Scholarship, it cannot be awarded until the student is officially accepted into their study abroad program.

Programs during the winter break and spring break are not eligible for this scholarship.
