Scholarships

We are proud to offer many scholarships to both undergraduates and graduate students. Scholarships are offered during the middle of autumn semester.

Scholarships received during autumn semester are usually awarded during spring semester of the same academic year, however exceptions can be made.

Autumn

Ohio Association of Realtors (OAR) Scholarships

The scholarships available during autumn quarter are in large part funded by the Ohio Association of Realtors (OAR) and its members, both past and present. The Ohio Association of Realtors consistently sponsors over $20,000 annually in scholarships for students enrolled in Fisher College of Business and have begun to take courses in a real estate program. There are nine OAR Scholarships which are awarded to students each year. Generally, each scholarship is between $1,000 and $4,000 and they are awarded to between 10 to 15 undergraduate and graduate students. Results vary depending upon the size of the endowment and number of qualified applicants.

The application process is streamlined so that students need only to submit one application and their resume before the due date to be considered for all nine scholarships. The application can be filled out and submitted electronically.
