The OTA Scholarship Program commenced in 2005 with a generous donation from former board member Paul Smith and his wife Ethel.  Today, three $1,500 scholarships are awarded annually.  Applicants must be a high school senior planning to attend a two or four-year Ohio college or university the following fall.


The scholarships are funded by donations from County Township Associations, personal donations and proceeds from the Annual Golf Outing.  Please see below for past winners.
