Scholarships and Student Employment

Our goal is to help undocumented and DACA students find the financial support they need to be successful at The Ohio State University. DACA students who qualify for in-state tuition are eligible for need-based financial aid through the university. For more information please contact Ms. Indra Leyva Cook, Liaison for DACA Students, at   

Student employment opportunities can be found on the Student Job Board.

Although undocumented students cannot legally receive any federally funded student financial aid, including federal loans, grants and scholarships, there are some private scholarships for undocumented students. These do not require students to be U.S. citizens or residents.  For more information please contact Ms. Indra Leyva Cook, Liaison for DACA Students, at
