Alumni Club of Greater Jacksonville Scholarship Program

Our club is proud to have offered multiple merit-based scholarships to our local students. The award will typically be from $500-$2,000 depending on the availability of funds. The number of awards may also vary. This money comes from the proceeds from yearly dues, game watches, donations, and other fundraising activities.

Preference will be given to those students qualified under the Alumni Scholars Program criteria. Payment will be made to the student’s account at the Ohio State University and dispersed evenly one time each semester (Autumn/Spring) per school year.

Returning students are eligible to renew their scholarship for their four years (eight consecutive semesters) provided they meet the requirements, and funds are available.
