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.
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 2017 OTA scholarship winners will be announced soon.
Currently, the scholarships are funded by donations from County Township Associations, personal donations and proceeds from the OTA’s Annual Golf Outing. Thank you to the 2016 Golf Outing sponsors, who helped raise over $8,500 for the OTA Scholarship Program.
