Several scholarships are available to support students enrolled in DRCA credit courses in July 2019.
You need only submit one application to be considered for all scholarships for which you are eligible.

Any full-time OSU student who intends to enroll in a DRCA summer course and has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 is eligible to apply. Some scholarships have additional eligibility requirements. Recipients of the Estelle Hammond Scholarship, for instance, must have completed at least 24 credit hours at OSU. The donors who funded the Dave and Louise Maher Endowed Scholarship wish to encourage Native American students to apply. Students who have a particular need for financial assistance should indicate this in their cover letters and explain their situations. Depending on funding, preference may be given to students who already have enrolled. (Students will not have to pay for DRCA summer classes until after scholarship money has been dispersed.)
