The Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (CIE) Scholars Program is a distinguished initiative developed to recognize and engage the graduate students at OSU. Each year, up to 10 outstanding MBA students and a select number of students from graduate programs across campus are chosen based on an application and interview process. Selected individuals will receive a $5000 scholarship awarded over two semesters and, at the end of the academic year, a plaque recognizing their service as a CIE Scholar. Selection criteria will include previous academic performance and achievements, leadership experiences, extra-curricular or community engagement activity, and unique life accomplishments. Students with academic interests in any discipline are welcome to apply.
