Our Scholarship

The Ohio University Columbus Alumni Network Endowed Scholarship was established in 1994 and provides a $1,000 continuing award to an incoming first year student to the Athens campus who is a son or daughter of a Central Ohio alumni. 


Since its inception, the endowment has provided tuition assistance to 30 students totaling $70,000. 

Currently we provide $4,000 annually, assisting four continuing students who maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and make normal progress toward graduation in four years.

Help us support future Bobcats!

Even $5.00 makes a difference

Thank you to the sponsors who donated generously to the day:

2021 Fundraising


A host of local Bobcat alumni gathered at TopGolf on

October 3, 2021 to swing the clubs on a fall day, raise funds for the Network’s annual scholarship fund, and have some fun.

A total of 45 local Bobcats attended the event – the largest number for a local event since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, the contingent and sponsors raised nearly $3,000 for the Network’s scholarship fund.
