Part of our mission is to pay forward by offering Alumni Merit Scholarships to St. Louis area high school students who plan to attend Ohio State. The annual income from our Endowment Fund (#666876) plus fundraising throughout the year allows us to award two $1800 scholarships. Learn more about our past scholarship recipients.
