Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience : Office of Student Life


CGS has always strived to support graduate students in pursuing their goals. To this end, CGS supports four funding sources: the Edward F. Hayes Graduate Research Forum, the Edward J. Ray Travel Award for Scholarship and Service as well as the Career Development Grant program.

The Edward F. Hayes Graduate Research Forum aims to help graduate students share their research with others and recognizes the truly outstanding students at the University.

The Edward J. Ray Travel Award for Scholarship and Service honors substantial commitment to service and helps graduate students to pursue their scholarly goals across the globe by financially aiding them when attending distant conferences and presentations.

The Career Development Grant program encourages graduate students to prepare for placement into their chosen field and provides an opportunity to defray associated costs.

The Global Gateway Graduate Student Research Abroad Grant encourages and promoted the proffessional and academic development of graduate researchers at OSU by providing financial support that allows graduate students to undertake research abroad.


IMPORTANT: Please note the changes made to the funding periods covered in the upcoming Career Development and Ray Travel Award Grants. Changes were made to more closely align with the University's fiscal funding period. Applications already submitted that fall after the applicable dates will be held until the next funding period deadline.
