OSU WestMI Scholarship Info & Dues

Kristy Kieda on February 12, 2016

Our West Michigan Scholarship Application information has been sent to 50 local students who have been accepted to Ohio State at this time.  We also thought it would be a good idea to share information with our alumni in our area, in case you know a student who has been accepted and would be interested in applying for one of our scholarships
Each year our club offers scholarships to students from the West Michigan area based on the following criteria:
  • Be admitted to the university
  • Be recommended by school principals, counselors, and/or teachers based on scholastic ability and character
  • Have a record of performance in activities, both in school and in the community
  • Impress the club's scholarship committee during the personal interview by demonstrating a sound interest and positive attitude toward college
  • Attend high school in the county/area in which the participating alumni club's membership is based. (West Michigan)
The number and the amounts of the scholarships vary each year based on the number of applicants, but typically we award up to 5 scholarships ranging from $1000-$1500.  If you know someone who is interested in applying for the scholarship and has met the above criteria, please share the application.  The deadline for applications is February 15. Two letters of recommendation should be included with the application. Personal interviews, via Skype, Facetime or Google Hangout will be scheduled once the application has been received.  The selection committee will turn in their recommendations by February 25 and Ohio State will contact the recipients in the spring.
If you have any questions, please contact Carolyn Hummel.  You may also want to check our website --
