The Graduate School is pleased to invite nominations for our Diversity Scholar Recruitment Award. The purpose of this award is to support inclusiveness in graduate programs, to recruit and retain students from divergent and non-traditional backgrounds, and to enrich the academic environment by embracing a broad range of perspectives.

The Diversity Scholar Recruitment Award will provide tuition waivers and remissions from the Graduate School in support of fully-funded (.49 FTE or equivalent level Fellowship) academic year appointments in the units at the level of a Graduate Fellow (preferred) or Graduate Research/Teaching Assistantship.  Eligible student nominees must be first year, PhD level graduate students who meet diversity enhancement and high-achieving academic criteria.  Priority will be given, but not limited to, students newly recruited to OSU (first degree at OSU) and nominated by newly hired tenured/tenure-track faculty (hired to position 2012-13 or later).

For each student award, faculty/units must provide stipend funding for an academic year (9 month) Graduate Fellowship or GRA/GTA appointment (.49 FTE).  If selected for an award, the Graduate School will provide an academic year tuition waiver scholarship for the Graduate Fellowship appointment, OR provide equivalent funding to the department via budget transfer of an academic year tuition remission.  Appointments will be made and administered by the individual units receiving the awards. Individual faculty may submit up to two student nominations.
