The five graduate programs at the Center for International Studies offer financial assistance to selected students. Aid is awarded competitively on the basis of merit including previous academic performance or post graduation professional or other work experience. Programs also look for geographical, cultural, linguistic and other forms of diversity so that collectively the group of students strengthens the program.
Applicants wishing to be considered for program financial aid should complete the financial aid section on the Ohio University graduate application.
Program Financial Aid:
To be given full consideration for program financial aid, completed application and supporting documents need to be received by January 1. Admission and funding decisions will begin shortly thereafter. Later applications will be considered but decisions will be contingent upon availability.
International students can include financial aid awards to meet the estimated expenses on the Financial Support form.
Other Financial Aid Resources:
