“Future Scientists of Ohio” scholarships to pair CSCC, OSUA brand-new scholarship program starting this fall will offer full tuition scholarships to new students majoring in the Associate of Science program, who plan to graduate and transfer to Ohio State to study a “STEM” field—science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.

The program is part of the $100 million “Choose Ohio First Scholars” program announced in February by the Board of Regents. The combination of scholarship money and academic support is “designed to return Ohio to its former position of prominence as a world-renowned cradle of invention and innovation.”

New students this fall who plan to pursue the Associate of Science will be able to apply for the scholarship if they have a high school 3.0 GPA with a specific math/science curriculum, an ACT test score of at least 23, a written essay and letter of recommendation. 

Know someone who may qualify for this new scholarship program? More information and the application are on the Columbus State Web site.
