The Ohio State Alumni Club of Greater New York focuses not only on recruiting students to attend Ohio State, but also raising funds for scholarships to award to high performing students from the New York area.
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.
Our local alumni club offers two $2,000 merit-based scholarship awards each year with funds raised from game watches, fundraising events and donations. Through a competitive application process, applicants are evaluated based on academic, work and extracurricular performance, as well as financial need. The Scholarships are one-time, non-renewable awards that are applied to the student's freshman year tuition at Ohio State.
The Process: The names of local high school seniors are made known to the Club by the Alumni Association after they are accepted at 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.
