CMRS Awards and Grants

Each year, the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies supports and recognizes the achievements of OSU students through our Stanley J. Kahrl and Barbara A. Hanawalt essay awards, and small grants program for graduate student research. 2011 marked the first year of our Nicholas J. Howe Grant Program. Please follow the links to the right for information about our awards and grants programs.

The Center’s awards, grants and scholarships are disbursed through OSU Student Financial Aid. Students already receiving substantial aid from other sources should review their current-year packages and consult with Buckeye Link to confirm their ability to accept awards prior to applying.

A student may not receive financial aid and other resources in excess of the annual cost of attendance at the university in accordance with federal guidelines.  If you receive additional financial resources and/or assistance, it may impact your eligibility for other financial aid awards. If you have any questions about your individual situation, consult Buckeye Link at 614-292-0300 or by email at
