The OSU Club of Erie County awards scholarships each year in the amount of $10,000+. Monies awarded are derived from the hard work of a dedicated board and club. There are also memorial grants and an ASP Scholarship from the University. The ASP Scholarship is the top honor given each year.
In the Spring of 2016, fifteen scholars were honored at our Annual Meeting/Banquet at the Plum Brook Country Club. Our scholarship winners are segregated into two categories–incoming freshman and upperclassman.
Each fall, applications for students interested in joining the freshman class of The Ohio State University are distributed to all area high schools in Erie County. The Scholarship Committee reviews each application, by necessity narrows the field, and conducts personal interviews with approximately 15 students. Determinations and notifications are made in February. Criteria for incoming freshman is merit based, with grades, class rank, ACT/SAT, community and school activities playing a role in the Scholarship Committee’s selection of winners. There are generally 7-10 Freshman Scholarships awarded each year.

To be considered for this scholarship they must have a 3.2 accumulative grade point average. The main criteria for this award is need based although student accomplishments and involvements can come into play when the Scholarship Committee makes its determinations. There are generally 4-6 Upperclassman Scholarships awarded each year.
