Sesquicentennial Scholarship Application Available for Students

Submitted by Julia Morris, morris.878@osu.edu

The following email was sent to students last week on behalf of President Drake. If you know of any students who may be excellent candidates please encourage them to apply by February 1, 2019. 
    
   Dear Students: 
    
    
   In 1870, Ohio State was founded to elevate our communities through education and exploration. Since then, the university has been a launch pad for generations of Buckeyes to become leaders and create ideas that change the world. 
   As we approach our 150th anniversary next year — the university's sesquicentennial — I invite you to celebrate and strengthen this proud tradition by applying to participate in our new Sesquicentennial Student Scholar Leadership Program. 
    
    
   Each Sesquicentennial Scholar will: 
   • receive a $2,500 scholarship, 
   • participate in leadership training, 
   • serve as an ambassador for the university and our sesquicentennial. 
    
    
   If you are passionate about Ohio State and eager to share your enthusiasm, I encourage you to learn more and apply at 150.osu.edu/150scholars. Applications open today for all Ohio State students and will be accepted through February 1, 2019. 
    
    
   The Ohio State University has transformed lives for nearly a century and a half. I look forward to celebrating this milestone with you and, together, laying the foundation for the next 150 years of excellence and impact. 
    
    
   Sincerely, 
    
    
   Michael V. Drake, MD 
   President
