The W.W. Allen Boys and Girls Club Scholars Program (BGC Scholars) at OSU awards an incoming freshman between $19,000-$55,000 per year for up to four years of study toward a BS degree in engineering. This includes an OSU tuition waiver between $4,000-$40,000 and an annual CEAT Scholarship of $15,000. Additionally, each scholar will participate in funded enrichment, travel and networking opportunities. This scholarship program was designed to benefit a person who was an active member of a Boys & Girls Club while in high school.
The purposes of this program are: to accelerate professional and leadership development, stimulate intellectual growth, develop career awareness and cultural perspectives, and develop interpersonal skills; as well as to provide financial enrichment to students actively involved in local Boys and Girls Clubs, who desire to pursue a career in the engineering industry. Eligible applicants must have a history of leadership in one or more organizations in high school. Preference will be given to students with at least a 3.0 GPA.
