University Fellowship Competition

The Graduate School Fellowship competition is part of Ohio State’s recruitment of outstanding students who plan to enter a graduate program at Ohio State for the first time in the upcoming academic year. These fellowships are awarded to deserving candidates through a highly competitive process that focuses on academic records, letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, GRE scores, and potential to be successful in a graduate program. These award decisions are not based on financial need.

Graduate students cannot directly apply for a Graduate School Fellowship. Graduate students interested in being considered for a Graduate School Fellowship must check the appropriate box on their Admission Application. Candidates are then reviewed and nominated by their graduate program.

You can find more information about the University Fellowship Competition on the Graduate School website.

Deadline for consideration for nomination by the Graduate Studies Committee for a University Fellowship is November 30th.
