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.


The Fourth Annual Golf Outing is set!  Mark your calendar for Aug. 7, and join us for some fun at the Golf Club of Dublin in Dublin, Ohio.  Click here for registration information, and here for a sponsorship form.
