Since 2008, OSUSAZ has offered scholarships to Tucson and Southern Arizona’s top high school students. These scholarships are awarded based on merit and help offset the cost of attending The Ohio State University as an out-of-state student. This is one of the most important ways we, as an Ohio State Alumni Club, pay it forward.


ScholarshipUniverse simplifies the process of finding and applying for internal and external scholarships at Ohio State. This platform hosts all alumni club scholarships. Apply and/or update your profile each year by The Ohio State University priority date for maximum aid consideration.

Log in to ScholarshipUniverse using your Ohio State username (lastname.#) and password. Need instructions for activating your username? Contact Buckeye Link, 614-292-OHIO, for assistance.
