Dear OSU Undergraduate and Graduate Students,

I am writing to share that the university has received additional federal assistance funding for students. To learn more about this program and apply for federal assistance, please visit OSU’s Emergency Funding webpage and apply using the emergency funding request. There are very few eligibility requirements associated with this assistance.

The funds are coming to OSU through the American Rescue Plan (ARP), which authorized funds for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III. These funds may be used for any component of students’ cost of attendance or emergency costs that arise due to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as tuition, food, housing and health care, including mental health care or childcare. OSU will prioritize providing federal assistance to students with exceptional need.

All OSU students, including Ecampus students, international students, DACA students, and undocumented students are eligible to receive funding.

Contributing to your continued wellness and progress toward attainment of your educational goals remain the university’s top priorities.

I hope that you and your friends and families are well.


Edward Feser, Provost and Executive Vice President
