The Ohio State Alumni Club of Detroit Scholarship Fund has been established through the hard work of our club members, the generosity of our donors and the many Buckeye fans and alumni. Our Club is proud to provide scholarships to students in the Detroit area who are accepted at Ohio State and are committed to attend.

Students from the club area may be awarded scholarship money based on the following criteria:

• Admittance to the University

• Record of participation in school, community, extracurricular activities, and academic merit

• Quality of answers to several essay questions

• A personal interview with our Scholarship Committee
