                                           Recruitment and Development

              While many students prepare for summer relaxation and senior preparations a top
              priority on any students list of summer accomplishments should be to focus on the
              college admissions process and scholarship opportunities.

              With recruitment ventures that literally spread all over the United States, the R&D
              coordinators are aware of issues that many in and out of state students would be
              concerned with. The R&D department has a dedicated group of individuals willing
              to work with students who are interested in visiting, applying to and attending The
              Ohio State University regardless of location. It is always recommended that if
              there are any questions during the OSU and or the MSP application process
              students should never hesitate to contact us.

The Morrill Scholars Program (MSP) is named in honor of Senator Justin Morrill, author of the 1862 Morrill Act that facilitated
access to higher education for students previously underrepresented at America’s colleges. The Office of Minority Affairs
offers this program to promote diversity, multiculturalism, and scholarship. It also aims to enrich the educational experience of
all Ohio State students so they will be prepared for optimum success in the world community. We expect all of our
scholarship recipients to actively participate in cultural and multicultural events, activities, and organizations to help build a
diverse community that utilizes our collective strengths, talents, leadership, and interests to foster an environment where all
can reach their full potential. For further information concerning applying for the MSP Scholarship, visit our website at:
This page will provide more information concerning the MSP Scholarship, The Freshman Foundation Program (FFP) which is
a grant program offered through OMA, as well as more information about the recruiting staff, future locations and dates when
one of the OMA recruiters will be in your area and much more pertinent information.

This fall the Office of Minority Affairs will once again be having our Overnight Visitation Program where we invite students from
Out-of-State to come to campus and participate in a number of planned activities that we coordinate. We always look to the
guidance counselor to provide us with nominations for this program. We plan to invite seniors who are in the top 10% of their
high school class, seniors who have a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.5, students taking AP or Honors courses and students
that have at least a 26 ACT or 1170 SAT (if they have taken it). We also request an unofficial copy of the students transcript
so we can verify their academic credentials. All expenses are paid for the student by our office which includes; airfare, lodging,
transportation and meals. Of course the parents or guardians are more than welcome to attend this event as well, however
they must cover their own expenses. For more information about our Overnight Visitations, please visit our website at:
