Scholarship Award Procedures and Administration

The Ohio State Alumni Club of Nashville offers two types of scholarship awards annually: The Lynne Murray Stockwell Scholarship and The Freshman Scholarship. These scholarships are available thanks to the hard work of our club members, the generosity of our donors and many Buckeye fans and alumni.

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

  • Preferably be admitted 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 local Scholarship Committee.
