What is ICSP?
A select number of international students receive ICSP partial tuition remission scholarships in exchange for assisting their academic colleges to internationalize. In some cases, students will be invited to speak at elementary, middle, and high school classes, university classes, civic and youth organizations, retirement homes, or church groups. In other cases students will promote global learning or other key international goals of their colleges.
The ICSP scholarship is available to students who are fully admitted to a bachelors, masters or PhD program at OSU. Post-baccalaureate applicants and applicants who are offered conditional admission based on their TOEFL or IELTS test scores are ineligible. You must be able to show sufficient evidence of funding to support your education minus the proposed ICSP award amount before you can be considered for the International Cultural Service Program.

ICSP, GRA/GTA and other Scholarship
Graduate students may apply for assistantships directly to the department of their major field of study, but cannot be receiving ICSP scholarship and having an assistantship at the same time. In addition, ICSP scholarship can not be awarded to a student with another tuition remission scholarship, such as International Provost Scholarship (IPS).
