Scholarships

As alumni, we realize the benefits of our experiences at The Ohio State University and have many fond memories of our college days.  The Ohio State University Alumni Club of Los Angeles (OSULA) is committed to giving students from Southern California the opportunity to sing the praises of Ohio State. Our student recruitment committee visits thousands of young students each year in an effort to attract top students to Ohio State.  Most importantly, OSULA awards up to $15,000 in scholarships each year and several years ago established an endowed scholarship in the club’s name.  If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to the OSULA Scholarship Fund, please send a check (made payable to The Ohio State University) to OSULA, 2040 Hermosa Ave, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.  Thank you in advance for your support of the university and OSULA.
Student Recruitment  Throughout the year, OSULA represents Ohio State at several college fairs around Los Angeles.  We pass out OSU literature and answer the questions of potential new Buckeyes. Fairs are generally held on weekday evenings.  It’s easy, OSU provides ‘facts and answers sheets’, and we always send you with others who have done it before.  For more information or to sign up to help staff a College Fair in your area, please email Scott Snapp at snappbuckeye1@aol.com.
