This year the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics (AEDE) awarded 25 students majoring in Agribusiness and Applied Economics (AAE) more than $60,000 in scholarships, which is part of the close to $3 million in scholarships given to students throughout the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES). These scholarships make a meaningful impact in keeping college affordable for students as Ohio State works towards offering a debt-free bachelor's degree within the next decade. This could not be possible without the generous support from our alumni and donors.

Student scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of a variety of factors including academic performance and extracurricular involvement. Student recipients and donors were able to connect and celebrate at a recent brunch hosted by the department. Learn more about our recipients below.
