The Ohio State Alumni Club of Houston Scholarship Fund has been established through the hard work of our club members, 50/50 raffles, and other fundraising events, but most importantly, the generosity of our donors and the many Buckeye fans, alumni, and supporters. Our club is proud to provide scholarships to students in the club area, who are accepted at Ohio State and are committed to attend.

How to apply for a scholarship

Students from the club area (Greater Houston Metropolitan area and surrounding counties including Galveston to the South and Beaumont to the West) may be awarded scholarship money based on the following criteria:

  • Admittance to the University
  • Record of participation in school, community, extracurricular activities, and academic merit
  • Quality of answers to several essay questions
