Ohio State Chapter Scholarships

The ATZ-FH Alumni Association, the ATZ-FH Foundation Council and our alumni sponsor 9 scholarship programs for active members of the Ohio State Chapter. Students must maintain specific GPA and residency requirements to be eligible for various scholarships. Even though some scholarships are administered through the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, members need not to be enrolled in the College or the School of Environment and Natural Resources to be eligible. However, to be eligible for a chapter scholarship, all active members must complete the common scholarship form on-line provided by CFAES regardless of college or school of enrollment.
