Support Future Buckeyes:

The Ohio State Alumni Club of Delaware County provides two scholarship awards each year: Endowed and Non-Endowed.

Endowed Scholarship

The Ohio State Alumni Club of Delaware County Endowed Scholarship fund has been established through the hard work of our club members, the generosity of our donors and the many Buckeye fans and alumni. Our club is proud to provide scholarships to students in the club area, accepted at Ohio State and are committed to attend. Students who are residents of Delaware County may be awarded scholarship money based on the following criteria:

  • Admittance to the University
  • Record of participation in school, community, extracurricular activities, and academic merit
  • Quality of answers to several essay questions
  • Potential interview with one or more of our Scholarship Committee members

Further information on scholarships and Financial Aid at Ohio State can be found here. For questions, contact Leslie Smith,, 614-292-6576 at the Alumni Association.

Non-Endowed Scholarship

This process will begin in March. Students may obtain application forms through their high school or here. The scholarship committee will review and score applications. The committee chair will contact the selected student upon confirmation of admission and acceptance to The Ohio State University.

The recipient cannot also receive the Endowed Scholarship.
