Support our Palm Beach County Scholarship Fund
One of our main goals as an alumni club year in and year out is to award as large of a scholarship as possible to a local high school student in Palm Beach County who is currently attending Ohio State.
Over the last 30+ years we have helped make many students’ dreams of attending The Ohio State University come true thanks to the unbelievable and generous support from all of you! Over this time, we have increased our annual scholarship amount from $2,000 to over $16,000! This past year we awarded our largest scholarship ever with $16,175 going to a local student from West Boca Raton High School who will be attending The Ohio State University! This amount will likely be in the top 10 out of 130+ clubs that awarded scholarship for 2019!
When learning of being awarded a scholarship from our Alumni Club, these young students' emotions range from excitement and joy to a sense of relief as it eases the financial burden on them and their families for choosing to attend college outside of Florida. Many of these kids could attend college locally for far less money, however, for most of them it has been their dream to attend Ohio State since they could walk and they know what Ohio State will do for them in their future careers. They are investing in their future by choosing to attend Ohio State and we will continue to invest their futures as well.
Please consider donating any amount towards our scholarship fund on this day of giving as it will no doubt help make a young person’s dream of attending The Ohio State University come true!
