Dietetic interns at OSU, who are enrolled as graduate students in at least four graduate credit hours during the spring and fall semesters or at least two credit hours in the summer semester, are eligible for deferment of their student loans and may be considered for financial assistance for those semesters.
Dietetic internship applicants are eligible and encouraged to apply for scholarships from the College of Education and Human Sciences. The deadline for college applications is typically early January for the following academic year.
Scholarships are also available through state dietetic associations and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for Academy members.
