Ohio Latino Scholarship Network

The Ohio Latino Scholarship Network is part of the Commission's education initiative to encourage and facilitate collaboration among Ohio's Latino scholarship programs.
One component of the Network is the Scholarship Resource Center.

The Resource Center will provide scholarship and application information, as well as tips for applying for scholarships. The Ohio Latino Affairs Commission is not endorsing any particular scholarship program and does not claim to present an exhaustive list. Resources will be continually added as we are made aware of opportunities.
