Office of Student Life : Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

STEP Fellowship

Following the completion of program requirements, students will be eligible to receive a fellowship of up to $2,000 that will support the STEP Signature Project they have developed with the help of a member of the STEP Faculty.  Students will submit a budget for their project that will be reviewed and approved by STEP Administration. Students will submit their budget on their Student Dashboard.

The fellowship will be available to students to support the completion of their project during the year after their STEP participation, beginning on the day after the end of spring semester and continuing until classes begin fifteen months later (approximately August 15).

Students are not eligible to receive the STEP Fellowship if they graduate immediately after completing their STEP participation. If a student graduates during the year following their STEP participation, their project must be completed, the funds must be expended, and they must have reported back to the OSU community before they graduate. Otherwise, the money provided to them will be billed to their university account and must be paid back before they receive their diploma.
