OSU Scholarships & Financial Aid
OSU offers a wide range of scholarships and financial aid to incoming first-year and transfer students. OSU is committed to recruiting and retaining motivated, diverse, and driven students, and one of the ways we do so is with our scholarship opportunities. Most university awards are based on a combination of academic merit and financial need. For additional information on scholarship opportunities available through the university, please visit the OSU Financial Aid & Scholarships page.


Additionally, through the generosity of our donors, the College of Forestry awards nearly $550,000 in undergraduate scholarships annually.  Awards ranging from $1,000 - $10,000. The average cumulative GPA of those students awarded was 3.54. While scholarships are generally based on academic performance, some are specific to need, degree program, or other criteria set by our donors, so don’t hesitate to apply.  New and current students (including post-baccalaureate students) who have been admitted to OSU or are currently enrolled in the College of Forestry are eligible to apply for College of Forestry scholarships.
