Student Financial Literacy Award

Patrick S. Osmer — July 11, 2013


I’m glad to report that we have been awarded a grant from the Council of Graduate Schools and TIAA-CREF to enhance the financial education of Ohio State graduate and undergraduate students. The Graduate School is collaborating with the Office of Student Life and its Scarlet and Gray Financial Program on this project, which is aimed at allowing students to play a more active and informed role in managing their personal finances. 

Our program will be tailored to each student’s financial needs and risk behavior and will include a continuum of online and in-person offerings. We are developing the resources needed to make it easy for students to tap into the information they require at key milestones, such as when they are making decisions about college or graduate school, need to manage debt and other financial situations, or make a transition into employment.

Student debt and personal finances are huge issues for undergraduate and graduate students alike. I fully expect that Ohio State’s financial literacy program will become a best-practices model for other institutions.

 I want to thank Scott Herness, associate dean in the Graduate School, and our partners in the Student Wellness Center in the Office of Student Life, Connie Boehm, director, and  Jonathan Nutt, assistant director, for leading this effort.

Patrick S. Osmer is vice provost for graduate studies and dean of the Graduate School at Ohio State. He is a past chair of the board of directors for the Council of Graduate Schools. Osmer was chair of the Ohio State astronomy department from 1993-2006.

program question

My son is a grad student at OSU. Without helicoptering I am trying to help him find help filing his taxes and maybe some other information about finances. Is this program available already? Also, is there a recommended person that he can ask about filing taxes based on a first year fellowship and no longer being our dependent? Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this. He has been trying to find things out too but doesn't really know where to start.
thanks for any help you can offer

<p> He lost at the DGA, but he’s our pick for the Oscars. Why? The DGA has a huge TV contingent; they respected Tom Hooper’s craftsmanship on Speech, but Fincher’s visual mastery means more with the Academy. Bad sign for Hooper: Even BAFTA opted for Fincher over his British rival.</p>

Songs are digitally added to the karaoke machines database. He also has a strong relationship with his brother Bruce. On the other hand, if you catch her giggling and whispering with your guy friends, don't assume the worst. Through their revolutionary model, they have helped tremendous numbers of people enhance their relationship from 'good' to 'Great'. Any used by the Kindred to regain Willpower provides one Willpower less.

The borrower can plan the entire task and get the money for his needs accordingly. There are so many good brands available available in the market which provides high quality sports shoes like Nike, Sparx, Adidas, Ronaldo, and also Reebok. They don't promote get rich quick but what they do provide is a clear plan of action. All of them are equally important. , But they are rarely used and highly toxic / child-friendly!
