Scholarships

Our primary fundraising goal is to provide scholarship money to local area students who will be incoming freshmen at The Ohio State University.

The Club’s Scholarship Committee typically awards one scholarship which is renewable for the full four years of undergraduate study.  Additionally, the Club has been able to provide many other one-year scholarships to deserving students.

Since 2011, we have awarded over $100,000 to these students!

Board members who serve on the Scholarship Committee say this is the most rewarding part of being involved in the Club — being able to meet these fine young people who will soon be Buckeyes!  On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, we awarded scholarships totaling more than $32,000 to six Greater Cleveland students who are attending Ohio State this fall.

The Ohio State Alumni Club of Greater Cleveland honored our 2017 scholarship winners at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in June. Congratulations to these new Buckeyes who will represent the best of Cleveland at The Ohio State University! Pictured (L – R): Adam J. (2015 winner), Nate G. (Solon), Sofia B. (Beaumont), Morgan M.
