The Young Buckeyes of Central Ohio Alumni club represents young alumni from Franklin, Delaware, Fairfield, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, and Union counties. As a result of the hard work of club members and the generosity of donors, the Young Buckeyes of Central Ohio is pleased to announce that they will offer a $1,200 scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The scholarship is open to incoming freshman students from a county represented by the club who are in the top 10% of their high school graduating class and demonstrate involvement and leadership in their school and community.

Interested students will complete an electronic application that reviews participation in school, community, extracurricular activities, academic merit, work history, reasons for attending Ohio State, and financial need.

Depending on state and university guidelines, a select number of students may be picked by the club’s scholarship committee for a 30-minute interview at an agreed-upon date and time in February.
