Choose Ohio First Students

The Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program provides scholarship support to Ohio residents who wish to pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or medicine (STEMM).  The state of Ohio, recognizing that a workforce trained in these areas is essential for strengthening our economy, has created this program to provide tuition support to Ohio residents pursuing STEMM degrees.

For Ohio residents applying to Kent State University or already enrolled full-time, there are several academic areas eligible for support.  Follow the links below for information on the individual programs.  Transfer, first-generation and underrepresented minority students are strongly encouraged to apply.
