Scholarships may be based on academic performance, financial need, religious affiliation, minority status, heritage, community affiliations, or a unique set of criteria that is important to the organization providing funds. A few examples of such scholarships are as follows:
Interest free loans available to Muskingum County residents. Maximum amount is $2,000 per year for 4 years. Recipients must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA. New applications are accepted in June and July until all money is disbursed. New applicants can apply at the end of May as long as they have all of the required materials. Renewals may be submitted at any time, but are usually submitted in the summer months.
Scholarship Central will be soon be offering two scholarships for students who have completed at least their first year of postsecondary education. The 2014 Forest M. and Meryl C. Cale Scholarship and the 2014 Violet And Ralph Hennessey Scholarship will both be online applications available through links on this page.

Any Muskingum County resident who has completed at least their freshman year at a two or four-year accredited college, technical college or university within the United States is eligible to apply. Number and amount of awards vary annually, depending on availability of funds. Applicants must apply online through the link above. You will be able to save your work and come back to it; after you have submitted it, you may still revise your application until the deadline. If you do not receive a confirmation email after you submit your application, it may not have been submitted successfully, so follow the directions on the form to contact Scholarship Central.
Deadline is two weeks prior to the starting date of the semester you wish to enroll. Applications and all required documentation must be received in the Admissions Office by that date.
You must meet all of the following criteria:
Have a composite score of 21 or higher on the ACT (or equivalent SAT score).
Have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher after the completion of senior year.

Deadlines vary by school. Multiple scholarships totaling $13,000 will be awarded to outstanding freshmen males attending one of these four universities in Ohio next year: The Ohio State University, The University of Cincinnati, The University of Toledo, and Miami University. The Balanced Man Scholarship awards incoming freshmen who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership skills, a commitment to health and well being, and all around excellence in their everyday lives. See guidelines and application for details.
Deadline is October 6, 2014. Award is $500. Our belief is that achieving a high grade point average should not be the only criteria for determining who deserves to be helped. For that reason we are offering a scholarship that will be awarded on the basis of character, as determined by evaluated the essays that are submitted.
Scholarships are intended for our future leaders across a wide spectrum of fields of study. This award is available to high school seniors and all students attending a post secondary educational facility.
You are not required to be taking Engineering courses to be eligible.
