Over 340 scholarships are available to Ohio high school seniors.
The Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools announced the 2011-2012 Legislative Scholarship Program, which offers over 340 scholarship opportunities with more than $1,100,000 to graduating high school seniors in Ohio. The primary objective of these scholarships is to provide students with the education and training necessary to obtain a job in an Ohio business or industry.
Available scholarships may cover one-half tuition, or specific amounts that would assist the recipient in obtaining a certificate, diploma, associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree.
As part of the application process, each applicant must obtain the signature of a member of the Ohio House of Representatives or the Ohio Senate on the Legislative Nomination Form. Representative Bob Peterson would like to assist any student in the district who is interested in applying to the Legislative Scholarship Program.
Scholarship packets have been distributed to local high schools in the district. Additional forms can be retrieved from the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools’ website www.ohiocareercolleges.org. The scholarship application deadline is April 2nd.
