The Ohio State University Fellowship Program

The university has two distinct fellowship opportunities for incoming students: the University Fellow; and the Graduate Enrichment Fellowship. These competitive applications for high achieving students and students from diverse background and perspectives. You will need to communicate directly with the Graduate Coordinator to discuss your eligibility and the requirements for application by November 1.

If you are applying for an Ohio State fellowship, please check the box indicating your interest on your application form.

  • Letters of Recommendation - You must request 3 letters of recommendation using the forms provided in the graduate school reference form that speak specifically to your eligibility and suitability to the Fellowship program. These references will be in addition to the three letters needed for admission.
  • Letter of Intent - You will also write a second letter of intent focused on why you should be awarded a fellowship, not to request admission to the program (the first letter related entirely to becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist).

We recommend that you only apply for a fellowship if your undergraduate grade point average (GPA) is 3.6 or higher. Fellowships provide scholarships for the first year of your professional program.
