Ohio State Marion Scholarships

The Ohio State University at Marion manages over 45 individual scholarship funds which provide up to $1.2 million annually in campus-based scholarships.

  • New students admitted to Ohio State Marion by February 15, 2015 for the 2015-2016 school year will receive first consideration for available scholarship funds, with students admitted after that date being considered on a funds-available basis only.  No separate scholarship application is required of new applicants.
  • First Choice Incentive Scholarship - New freshmen applying for fall 2015 admission to Marion as their "first-choice" Ohio State campus by December 1, 2014 who have a minimum 2.7 high school grade point average (on a 4.0 scale, unweighted) will be awarded a minimum $1,500 scholarship for the 2015-2016 academic year, with a higher award possible based upon academic performace and financial need.
  • Current or returning Ohio State students who wish to apply for Marion campus scholarship funds must complete the online 2015-16 Ohio State Marion Scholarship Application by February 15, 2015 at http://intraweb.marion.ohio-state.edu/Scholarship/ScholApp.php.
  • Our awards are based upon either prior academic performance (cumulative GPA), financial need, or a combination of the two. Therefore, filing your FAFSA by the February 15 priority deadline is strongly encouraged in order to maximize the likelihood of qualifying for a scholarship award.
  • Awards will be prorated for less than full-time attendance in a given term.
  • Awards cannot be used to pay tuition or other fees at another OSU campus or another college or university.
  • Eligible students may receive a maximum of four years (eight semesters) of Marion campus scholarships.
  • Unused portions of awards from one term cannot be carried over to another term.
  • For merit-based awards, current student cumulative grade point averages as of February 15, 2015 will be used to determine eligibility for 2015-2016 awards.

We also offer a  Dean's Scholarship, which provides full in-state tuition and a book allowance to 2015 high school graduates who meet the following criteria:

  1. Admitted to Ohio State Marion by February 15, 2015

  3. Will have completed a full college-preparatory curriculum upon graduation
  4. Will graduate in the top 10% of their high school class
  5. Have a minimum ACT composite score of 27

The Dean's Scholarship is renewable for up to a total of 8 semesters (4 semesters for Engineering), provided the student commits to complete one of the qualifying degree programs entirely at the Marion campus (two full years of Engineering), maintains full-time enrollment at the Marion campus and a 3.5 cumulative grade point average.  Two Dean's scholarships for each of the above majors are available each year.
