How to apply

The Ohio State Alumni Club of Charleston, SC Scholarship Fund has been established through the hard work of our club members and through the generosity of the many LowCountry Buckeye fans and alumni. Our club is proud to provide scholarships to students in the club area who are accepted at Ohio State and who have committed to attend. Incoming first-year students from Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties in South Carolina may be awarded scholarship money based on the following criteria:

  • Admission to the University.
  • Record of participation in school, community, extracurricular activities, and academic merit.
  • Quality of answers on the application.
  • And possibly, a personal interview with our local Scholarship Committee.
