Students in this program receive an award of $750. The $750 will be transferred into the student’s OSU account as two installments. $350 will be applied in the Winter term, and $400 in the Spring term after we have verified you are continuing in your project.
It is possible that this award could affect a student's financial aid package. If you are concerned that your financial aid may be impacted, please contact a Financial Aid Advisor.
