COLUMBUS – The Ohio High School Athletic Association will hand out total of $55,000 in college scholarships to 49 recent high school student-athlete graduates following selections made recently by each of the OHSAA’s six District Athletic Boards. The OHSAA’s annual college scholarship program is now in its 22nd year.
Of the 49 honorees, 43 will receive $1,000 awards, including six (one from each district) who will receive an OHSAA Minority Scholarship presented by Farmers Insurance. One student from each district will receive $2,000 OHSAA Spirit of Sport scholarship, which goes to the highest ranking scholarship recipient in that district based on the point system described below. Nike and Molten have also contributed to the OHSAA scholarship program.
“In addition to being excellent students, these 49 young people are leaders in their schools and in their communities,” said OHSAA Commissioner Dr. Dan Ross. “They truly represent what it means to be a student-athlete. Their families and schools are to be commended for helping them achieve so much already, but their futures are even brighter as they now move on to college. We are very proud of them.”

More About the Scholar-Athlete Selection Process
Scholar-athlete recipients are selected based on a point system which rewards students for grade point averages; class rank; ACT or SAT scores; varsity letters earned; and individual and team athletic honors. The number of scholarship recipients from each district are based upon the number of schools within the district. The recipients were selected by special committees within each of the OHSAA’s six athletic districts. Individuals who receive athletic scholarships from NCAA Division I or II institutions or appointees to military academies are not eligible for an award.
