2019 Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship Recipients Recognized

WolfeRecipients 0758The Office of International Affairs recently recognized the 2018-2019 recipients of the Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship at the annual Wolfe Luncheon on April 4 at the Faculty Club. President Michael V. Drake, MD, other university leaders, the Wolfe family and representatives of The Dispatch Printing Company and the Wolfe Foundation, congratulated the 36 recipients. Students were awarded a $2,500 scholarship to help fund their individual long-term study abroad programs.

The Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarship Endowed Fund was established September 1, 1999 with a $1 million gift from the Robert F. Wolfe and Edgar T. Wolfe Foundation. Over the last 18 years, scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each have been distributed annually to more than 470 undergraduate students. The Wolfe Scholarship, which is administered by the Office of International Affairs, is the cornerstone of Ohio State's study abroad programs and helps to enhance the educational experience of Ohio State students.

In 2009, Wolfe presented another $1 million gift to the university, which doubled the endowment that supports the Wolfe Study Abroad Scholarships. As a result, this year, the award amount increased to $2,500. The financial support of these scholarships has changed the lives of a growing number of students who have had the opportunity to participate in long-term study abroad programs.

To receive the scholarship, students must:

  • Be an Ohio resident, who has graduated from an Ohio high school
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00
  • Be a Sophomore, junior, or senior standing at the time of the study abroad program
