About OHSAA Scholarships

The Ohio High School Athletic Association is pleased to make available to school administrators necessary information to support the application of one senior female and one senior male student-athlete from your high school for one of the OHSAA Scholar-Athlete Scholarships. In addition, we offer an Ethnic Minority Scholarship program, which permits the selection of one additional scholarship recipient from each of the six OHSAA athletic districts. Schools may submit one senior female minority and one senior male minority candidate for these scholarships in addition to your two other candidates. For more information, please contact Ron Sayers (rsayers@ohsaa.org).
