One of the very significant parts of the Ohio State University Alumni Club of Naples is the awarding of scholarships to local area students to attend the Ohio State University. The early leaders of our Club identified scholarship activity as important work and began immediately to fund and raise money for scholarships. Since the inception of scholarship awards in 1991 to the present time, 27 students have benefited from Club generosity. 

 

The focus of the Ohio State Alumni Club of Naples is not only on recruiting students to attend Ohio State but also raising funds for scholarship to award high performing students in the Naples area. The Ohio State University Alumni Scholars Program is intended to provide recognition and financial assistance to outstanding students wanting to attend the university. The Ohio State University Alumni Association coordinates the program with the support of the local Alumni Clubs, the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, and the Office of University Development.
