The Ohio Township Association Scholarship Program began in 2005. Many years prior to this, former board member Paul Smith and his wife, Ethel, gave the initial donation to the OTA Scholarship Fund, providing the groundwork for future scholarships. The scholarships are also funded by donations from County Township Associations, personal gifts, and proceeds from the OTA's annual golf outing.

Today, four $1,500 scholarships are awarded annually.  Among other requirements, applicants must be a high school senior planning to attend a two or four-year Ohio college or university. 

Wondering if you reside in a township? Consult your local County Auditor's website and input your home address in the property search function to obtain tax and property details. If you're looking for your local township officials, contact your County Board of Elections.
