The deadline is fast approaching for the International Cultural Service Program (ICSP) scholarship application. Every year, 30-35 international students from diverse backgrounds participate in this unique international education program that began at OSU over 25 years ago. The ICSP is a competitive scholarship in which recipients play the role of cultural ambassadors and give their time, talents and perspectives to audiences on the OSU campus as well as in the community throughout the school year. This partial tuition waiver of $10,000 reduces oneâ€™s tuition to about $7,300 per year. If you are interested, please be sure to complete and submit the ICSP scholarship application as well as the OSU application for admission by March 1. Graduate students, who have not been awarded a graduate assistantship, may also apply to and be awarded the ICSP scholarship. Selection of awardees generally takes place in May.
The International Provost Scholarship is another scholarship opportunity for international undergraduate students who meet OSUâ€™s application for admission deadline and OSUâ€™s minimum admission requirements, including the English language proficiency requirement for full admission. The application for admission deadline is April 1 for international undergraduate students outside the U.S. and June 1 for international undergraduate students currently in the U.S. No separate application is required to be considered for the IPS. This partial scholarship ($2,000-$6,000) is also competitive and based on merit, availability of funds and diversity of representation. Selection of awardees generally takes place in April and June.
