Academic Scholarships

OWU Students Say:
“The professors here are so passionate and so intrigued by your interests. They go out of their way to be part of your discoveries.”

If you are admitted to Ohio Wesleyan, your application is automatically reviewed to determine whether you qualify for merit awards and scholarship. Merit aid is based on various measures of achievement, not on financial need. Students are awarded the highest monetary-valued scholarship for which they are eligible to receive. 

For best consideration for these awards and scholarships, please apply by November 30.
