Alumni Scholars Program

OVERVIEW
The Alumni Scholars Program (ASP) presents an opportunity for constituted alumni clubs to meet exemplary students from their local area,
to encourage them to attend the Ohio State University and to give financial assistance through scholarships.

Alumni Clubs that participate in the Alumni Scholars Program award merit-based scholarships, which can be used to attend any of Ohio State’s campuses. 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE
The Office of Student Financial Aid selects recipients based on the club’s Scholarship Committee recommendations. To receive an ASP award, a student must:

  • Be admitted to the university.
  • Be preferably ranked in the top 10% of their high school class.
  • Be recommended by school principals, counselors, and/or teachers based on scholastic ability and character.
  • Have a record of performance in activities both in school and in the community.
  •  Impress the Scholarship Committee with a sound interest and positive attitude toward college work.
  • Be a resident or attend high school in the county/area in which the participating alumni club's membership is based.
  • Be an incoming freshman.

Ohio State varsity student athletes and varsity “walk on” athletes are not eligible.
