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. Currently, the scholarships are funded by donations from County Township Associations, personal donations, and proceeds from the OTA’s Annual Golf Outing.

Today, four $1,500 scholarships are awarded annually. Among other requirements, each applicant must be a township resident and a high school senior planning to attend a two- or four-year Ohio college or university. For more eligibility information, see the PDFs below.
