Sesquicentennial Student Scholar Leadership Program

Ohio State University Executive Vice President and Provost, Bruce A. McPheron, PhD, recently shared information regarding the university’s Sesquicentennial Student Scholar Leadership Program. In recent correspondence, Dr. McPheron noted “Ohio State has set aside $375,000 in scholarship money for 150 student ambassadors. Assuming you’re in good academic standing and passionate about being a Buckeye, you could be one of them. But you have to act fast — the deadline to apply is February 1, 2019. We’re offering these scholarships as part of Ohio State’s sesquicentennial celebration, which begins with the 2019–20 academic year. For nearly 150 years, Ohio State has diligently pursued its mission of ‘education for citizenship,’ and the Sesquicentennial Student Scholar Leadership Program builds on that tradition. In addition to receiving a $2,500 scholarship, each Sesquicentennial Scholar will participate in leadership training and serve as a university and college ambassador during the celebration, which could involve acting as a spokesperson, representative or volunteer at events.”

The scholarship is renewable for up to six additional semesters beyond the 2019–20 academic year, and recipients will be selected from every Ohio State campus and from every undergraduate, graduate and professional college.

Students chosen to be scholars must be enrolled during the 2019-2020 academic year. You can find more details and submit your application at
