Scholarships

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.

Through the generosity and support of our members we continue to increase the value of our scholarships and our endowment.  Thank you for your commitment!
