The Ohio High School Athletic Association annually provides scholarships for outstanding student athletes from its member schools. Each member high school may submit one senior male and one senior female candidate for scholarship consideration. Each member high school may also submit one senior female minority and one senior male minority candidate. The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who have excelled in the classroom as well as high school sports.
At the state level, the OHSAA provides 48 scholarships across the six OHSAA athletic districts. Thirty-six students receive $1,000 awards – including one student from each of the six OHSAA athletic districts that will receive an Ethnic Minority Scholarship – the remaining scholarships are awarded proportionately according to the number of schools in each athletic district.
In addition to the four scholarships awarded by the Ohio High School Athletic Association the Southeast District Athletic Board (SEDAB) is proud to award an additional twenty-one scholarships to the deserving scholar-athletes in Southeast Ohio.
