Ohio Space Grant Consortium Scholarhips

In an effort to encourage advanced education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) the Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) offers financial support through competitively awarded scholarship opportunities. To be considered for a scholarship, students must be citizens of the United States pursuing an undergraduate degree as a full-time student in a STEM-related discipline at an Ohio member university. Women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. Scholarships are funded through the Congressionally supported National Space Grant College and Fellowship Programadministered by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Matching funds are provided by member universities, the Ohio Aerospace Institute, foundations, and private industry. All scholarship recipients are required to propose and initiate a research project or educational activity under the guidance of a faculty mentor during the academic school year. Recipients must also attend and present the findings of their research/educational activity at the Annual Student Research Symposium, held every April at the Ohio Aerospace Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. Interested students should contact the Campus Representative at their home university for more information. Note that no indirect charges are allowed by the university for scholarship awards. All scholarship awards are contingent on available funding. OSGC member schools and related STEM disciplines are listed below. 

Open to all full-time Junior or Senior undergraduate students enrolled in a STEM-related discipline at a member university. Women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Undergraduate STEM Scholarships are $3,500 and are paid in two increments during the academic year at your home campus. Contact your Campus Representative for additional information about how funds are dispersed at your school. Scholarships begin with the Fall term. Scholars are required to attend the Annual Student Research Symposium at the Ohio Aerospace Institute and present their research. Juniors present a poster and Seniors make a PowerPoint presentation detailing their research project. Awards are for one academic year, and Junior awards may be renewable for the following year if the student's academic performance is acceptable, good progress has been made on the research project with plans for the following year, and upon approval of the Campus Representative. Current scholarship recipients who are interested in being renewed as Senior scholars are encouraged to follow up with their Campus Representative about their school’s renewal policy. Note that no indirect charges are allowed by the university for scholarship awards. All scholarship awards are contingent on available funding.

Interested students should submit an application package that includes the following:

  • Completed application form (which includes a personal objective statement discussing educational and career goals and proposal for proposed research project)
  • 2 letters of recommendation
  • Transcript(s)
