The Charlotte Buckeyes Alumni Club's Scholarship fund has been established through the hard work of our club members, the generosity of our donors and the many Buckeye fans and alumni. Our club looks to provide scholarships to students in the Charlotte area. Students from the Charlotte area may be awarded scholarship money based on the following criteria:

  • Record of participation in school, community, extracurricular activities, and academic merit.
  • Quality of answers to several essay questions.
  • And possibly, a personal telephone interview with our local Scholarship Committee.

You can apply for a scholarship from the Charlotte Buckeyes here:

General scholarship information can be found at  Further information on scholarships and Financial Aid at Ohio State can be found here. For questions, contact Leslie Smith,, 614-292-6576 at the Alumni Association.

Charlotte Buckeyes Scholarship dollars are raised from the proceeds of club events.  It is an excellent opportunity for our Club to recognize these in-bound students and be one of the first to welcome them to The Ohio State family!
