As you begin your URSA Engage Application, you will see the three essay questions listed below. The required word count for these essay questions is 1000 characters each. (Note: 1,000 characters is between 142 words and 250 words with spaces included in the character count.)
Students in this program receive an award of $1000 which will be transferred into the student’s OSU account as two installments. $500 will be applied in the Winter term, and $500 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.
