Academic Scholarships

Each year OHJA awards up to three academic scholarships. You may apply for a scholarship if you are attending, or planning to attend college (community or university), graduate school, or a vocational school.

Scholarships are awarded based upon information provided in the scholarship application, academic transcripts, and three letters of recommendation. Finalists are invited to interview with the Scholarship Committee in December. Scholarship recipients are announced at the Annual Awards Banquet and Fundraiser; funds are disbursed directly to the recipients’ chosen accredited educational institution.

The amount of the scholarship awarded varies based upon funds raised throughout the year. The OHJA relies on donations to the Scholarship Fund to offer scholarships.  If you are interested in donating directly to OHJA’s scholarship fund please contact the Scholarship Representative.

Applications for scholarships are due on or before November 15 of each year.  We encourage applicants to begin the application process early in order to complete their application on time. Application materials can be sent directly to the Scholarship Representative.
