Ohio University is currently accepting applications for the 2016-17 OHIO Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship, a distinctive award for all children and grandchildren of Bobcat alumni. Listen to an interview with this year’s Legacy Scholars here.

“At Ohio University, we pride ourselves in maintaining such a strong, connected and loving Bobcat family!” said Katrina Heilmeier, associate director for campus relations at OHIO’s Alumni Association (OUAA). “The Legacy Scholarship was created to give back to our OHIO families by helping undergraduate students continue their family’s Bobcat legacy.”

The OUAA Legacy Scholarship is accepting applications from all students who meet the following criteria:

  • Candidate must be an undergraduate for the upcoming school year.
  • Candidate must have at least one direct lineage Ohio University graduate (i.e. parent, stepparent, grandparent, great-grandparent, etc.).
  • Candidate must have a minimum GPA of 3.0.

Four winners will be selected for the $1,000 dollar scholarship, which is awarded to one student in each class ranking (freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior) annually.

Application packets are due by Monday, Feb. 1 at 5 p.m. and can be completed online or downloaded at and turned in via postal service, fax, or email.

The OUAA Legacy Scholarship was created by the Association’s Board of Directors, and is led by the Board and the Association. To find out how you can support the Legacy Scholarship, visit
