The Ohio State University Alumni Scholars Program

Information for Students

The Ohio State University Alumni Scholars Program (ASP) is intended to recruit, provide recognition and financial assistance to outstanding incoming freshmen. The Ohio State University Alumni Association coordinates the program, with the support of the local alumni club, the offices of Admissions and Undergraduate Financial Aid, and the Office of University Development.

Your local alumni club participates in the Alumni Scholars Program which provides scholarship awards as competitive, merit-based, recruitment scholarships. The standards of selection for this award are:

  • Accepted to The Ohio State University
  • Demonstrating involvement in school and community activities
  • Showing a sound interest and positive attitude toward college work
  • Suggested ranking in the top 10% of your high school graduating class

You should complete the Alumni Scholars Program Application. Some alumni clubs require your principal, counselor, or teacher recommendation as well as a transcript of your grades. If so, it is very important that they are attached to the application. The alumni club scholarship chairman must receive the completed application no later than the date specified on the application. The chairman’s name and address can be found on the application.

Award posting from the Office of Student Financial Aid will be visible on the recipient’s Buckeye Link account beginning in late February. If you are a recipient of an alumni scholarship award, it will be listed as the name of the club’s scholarship account. There are occasions when the recipient is not determined until summer.

If you are going to be an OSU varsity student athlete (even walk-on status), you may eligible for the club scholarship award but an award must be approved by Ohio State Compliance on a case by case basis.

There are different applications for each of our four counties. Please choose the correct application for your county of residence.

Further information may be obtained by contacting The Ohio State University Alumni Association, 2200 Olentangy River Rd, Columbus, OH 43210; (614) 292-6576, email Smith.6863@osu.edu. Do not send completed applications to The Ohio State Alumni Association or The Ohio State University Office of Admissions.
