Buckeye Bits E-Newsletter: February 22, 2018

The Ohio State University Alumni Scholars Program (ASP) is intended to provide recognition and financial assistance to outstanding incoming freshmen. The Ohio State University Alumni Association coordinates the program, with the support of the local alumni club, the offices of Admissions and Financial Aid, and the Office of University Development.

Throughout the year, events are held in order to raise funds for our Spearman Scholarship Fund. We also appreciate your direct assistance to our fund. Any donations provided to our fund contribute towards the $75 needed for Sustaining Membership and entry to the football ticket lottery.

OSUDC offers three $2,500 merit-based scholarship awards each year. Through a competitive application process, applicants are evaluated based on academic, work, and extracurricular performance. The Scholarships are one-time, non-renewable awards that are applied to the student’s freshman year tuition at Ohio State.

Names of local high school seniors are made known to the Club by the Alumni Association after they are accepted to the University. The Club then contacts students to give them the opportunity to apply for a Club Scholarship. Applications are reviewed by alumni volunteers, with all volunteers scoring and selecting the top candidates.
