Administered by the Center for Languages, Literatures, and Cultures
The Huntington National Bank pledged $250,000 to The Ohio State University Campaign in the form of an endowed fund to benefit humanities students interested in international business and foreign languages. Applications for the fellowship program are now available in the Center for Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.
This program is intended to permit students majoring in the humanities with interest and supporting work in international business and trade to spend an extended time abroad to enhance their fluency in the foreign language, their knowledge of the foreign culture, and their understanding of the workings and environment of international commerce.
- Be sophomores or juniors at The Ohio State University at the time of the application;
- Have completed a minimum of the first two years (four semesters) of OSU foreign language study or its equivalent prior to the study abroad experience;
- Be able to demonstrate serious interest in, commitment to, and involvement in, business, commerce, or industry.
Application deadline: February 17, 2014.
Announcement of awards: April 14, 2014.

In countries under a current Department of State Travel Warning, undergraduate students cannot use scholarship awards for study abroad programs and/or individual international projects outside of venues approved by Ohio State. Graduate and professional students may petition the Study Abroad Health and Safety Committee for approval a minimum of three months prior to proposed travel.
