HISTORY OF THE SCHOLARSHIPS
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 2017 application can be found here. You must be a resident of a township to apply.
The scholarships are funded by donations from County Township Associations, personal donations and proceeds from the Annual Golf Outing. Thank you to the 2016 Golf Outing sponsors, who helped raise over $8,500 for the OTA Scholarship Program.
