We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2020 CFAES Family Scholarships!

This year, for the first time the scholarships were available across our entire college. Our Columbus, CFAES Wooster, and Statewide CFAES Family Scholarship recipients were selected from a pool of over 20 well-qualified student applicants from our CFAES family. The selection committee, including representatives from both the Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) and Staff Advisory Council (SAC), found merit in all applications, and they report that their decisions were not easy. We congratulate the following 2020 recipients:

The original CFAES Family Scholarship was established for CFAES Wooster campus faculty and staff through a donation from James and Yvonne Brown. Inspired by the CFAES Wooster Campus Family Scholarship, two additional CFAES family scholarships (Columbus Campus and Statewide Campus) were created by donations from employees and others through the OSU Campus Campaign. All three awards provide educational assistance to eligible spouses or dependent children of CFAES employees.

Applications for the 2021 CFAES Family Scholarship can be submitted via the CFAES Scholarship Application Form through February 15, 2021. Applicants should answer “Yes” to the question, “Are you a spouse or dependent child of a CFAES employee?” and complete the affiliated dropdown fields.
