Scholarships are available to high school seniors preparing to enter college or any undergraduate student currently enrolled in college. Applicants or their parent or legal guardian must be a resident of Ohio.

Scholarships are selected based on academic record, leadership qualities, community involvement and responses to application essay questions.  Scholarship recipients are also provided a one-year complimentary student membership in OAC.
