2019 OSF Scholarship recipients
Each spring, The Oakwood Schools Foundation awards more than $20,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors.  With increasing costs for higher education, The Oakwood Schools Foundation’s scholarships mean more now than ever to these recipients.
Thanks to the generosity of the individuals and families who established these scholarships and to the donors who contribute toward these funds each year, Oakwood’s college-bound students appreciate this support for their continuing education.
If you have questions or would like information on how to set up a scholarship, please contact the Foundation at: contact@oakwoodschoolsfoundation.orgor 937-297-5332

Oakwood Schools Foundation Scholarships Are Open 

Visit Scholarship Connect on the  Dayton Foundation website to review a full list of scholarships available to members of the OHS Class of 2021.   

The firm deadline is March 5 at 4 p.m. for all of these scholarships.  Do NOT wait until the day before the deadline to begin the application.  

Since you are required to upload your transcript, you will need to request a .pdf version from OHS Guidance.  If you complete the application sooner, your transcript will include your academic record through the end of your junior year.  You may also wait until first semester grades are posted in January.

You will also want to inform the teacher (or other recommender) you have identified as a reference so they can be on the lookout for an email from Dayton Foundation.  

If you have questions about the process, please email or call Michelle Brown at 937-225-9965 or Jessica Schreiber at 937-225-9953.  The Dayton Foundation office number is 937-222-0410.  Information can also be found on Instagram @daytonfoundation_scholarships
