About OHSAA Scholarships

The Ohio High School Athletic Association and its six District Athletic Boards are proud to once again offer the college scholarship program for the 2023-24 school year. School administrators will be provided information regarding the necessary steps to nominate senior student-athletes, one female and one male, for both the Scholar-Athlete and the Ethnic Minority Scholarship programs, with one male and one female nominee for each program. Recipients are selected based on a point system which rewards students for grade point averages; class rank; community service; 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. For more information, please contact Bob Goldring ([email protected]).

Scholar-Athlete Requirements

Each candidate must meet these minimum qualifications:
  • Must be a graduating senior
  • Minimum grade point average - 3.25 on a 4.0 scale upon completion of the seventh semester
  • Must have received a minimum of three varsity letters in one OHSAA sanctioned sport or four varsity letters in a combination of any two or more OHSAA sanctioned sports. NOTE: cheerleading is not a sanctioned OHSAA sport.
