We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 CFAES Family Scholarships!

The original CFAES Family Scholarship was established for CFAES Wooster campus faculty and staff through a donation from James and Yvonne Brown. Inspired by the CFAES Wooster Campus Family Scholarship, two additional CFAES family scholarships (Columbus Campus and Statewide Campus) were created by donations from employees and others through the OSU Campus Campaign. All three awards provide educational assistance to eligible spouses or dependent children of CFAES employees. 

Applications for the 2023 CFAES Family Scholarship can be submitted via the CFAES online scholarship application regardless of if the applicant is/will be a CFAES student or not, and are due by February 15, 2023. Please review the detailed criteria and application instructions carefully. If you have questions about the scholarship process, please reach out to Michelle Anderson, Program Manager for Faculty and Staff Affairs, at
