Each was established at $25,000.00 and only the interest can be used each year. The Scholarships are written in the name of The Grand Chapter of Ohio, Order of the Eastern Star and can be found on the internet for any of these schools.
The criteria the Grand Trustees established are:
- Upper class students or graduate students (no freshman)
- Students from Ohio only
- No academic requirements or special field of study
- Financial need not a requirement
- Renewable only once
- Funding only for tuition or books
- Must be a U.S. citizen but outside activities not considered
- Scholarship not refundable
- Each University will select the recipients

Does your Chapter have special projects to raise funds for Scholarships?
