Financial Aid & Scholarships
Engineering students here at Ohio State have access to a multitude of financial aid resources. Engineering scholarship programs are designed to be integrated into a student’s total financial aid package.
All new freshmen students who wish to apply for College of Engineering scholarships (including Women, Minority, Departmental and COFFEE) must complete the College of Engineering’s online application. Visit the College of Engineering’s website for scholarship deadlines, complete details and to apply.
The information on this page applies to new, incoming freshmen only. Current students should visit this page for scholarship and financial aid information.
The easiest way for new freshmen to be considered for all College of Engineering and departmental scholarships is to complete the College of Engineering Scholarship Application online. The ECE department does not have a separate scholarship application; we receive a copy of the College of Engineering Scholarship Application that you submit.
