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.

Annual Central Ohio Alumni Golf Outing

Our annual golf outing continues to be our biggest scholarship fundraiser.  It is the generous support from Bobcat friendly businesses that help us provide assistance for future students.

This year we were scheduled to hold our outing on Saturday, August 15, 2020.  However, like many events this year, it was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

If you'd like to help us continue to support future Bobcats, please consider making a donation.  Even $5.00 makes a difference.
