I received an email in March 2012 saying I had received the Eminence scholarship at OSU. I had already decided on Ohio State, but I hadn’t received financial aid yet. I had experienced some setbacks while applying to schools, too, so I wasn’t that excited about college in general.
More than feeling excited about the scholarship, I was confused. I had never heard about it. After talking to an Honors staff member, my family and I were somewhat convinced, but not entirely.
Once being here, though, I realized how real this opportunity was.
The Eminence Fellows program at Ohio State is a brand new scholarship that is given to approximately 25 incoming freshman students. Not only does it cover the full cost of attendance and provide an enrichment grant, you become part of a community of like-minded individuals.
The purpose of the program is to create future leaders and global thinkers.
Personally, my college experience has been infinitely more worthwhile because of the Eminence program.
If you’re thinking about college, think about applying for this. Your education is free, you receive a faculty mentor, and you are exposed to a whole wide world of opportunity.
Plus, you do fun things together like have a retreat in Hocking Hills!
So, high school juniors and seniors, think about OSU because of this incredible, unique opportunity!
