• Merit Scholarships 

    ODU Merit Scholarships are awarded to potential new students based on their high school GPA and ACT/SAT test scores, or college transcripts if the student is transferring. The ODU Merit Scholarship is contingent upon your application and acceptance to Ohio Dominican University. Completion of the FAFSA is not required to receive an ODU Merit scholarship, but you are strongly encouraged to do so, so that we can determine your eligibility for additional need-based financial aid.

    Scholarships range from $5,000 to $18,000 and are renewable each year provided the student meets the academic criteria stated at the time of the scholarship.

    Recipients of Ohio Dominican scholarships are also encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine their eligibility for other forms of need-based aid offered at Ohio Dominican.
