Scholarships and Financial Aid

Over 80% of all freshman entering CFAES receive a college scholarship. To maximize your opportunity to earn scholarships, Freshmen should complete the University Admissions Application by November 1st, our College Scholarship Application (to be eligible for college and departmental dollars), and the FAFSA (to qualify for scholarships that require documented financial aid) by March 15th. Priority consideration is given to students who submit the CFAES scholarship application by February 15th. Applications submitted after this date are considered if funding is available. We also encourage looking to outside sources for scholarships and grants, whether they are large organizations or local companies. 

Please note FAFSA extension: The Ohio State University is extending the deadline for students and families to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) until Friday, March 15 – a month later than the previous Feb. 15 deadline.
