FAO Provides Post-Secondary Scholarships for Students Across Appalachian Ohio
Nearly 210 Students Receive Awards
Nelsonville, OH – Setting Appalachian Ohio’s students up for success is a critical part of creating a region abundant with possibilities. That’s why many donors to the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO) have created scholarship funds focused on encouraging the pursuit of post-secondary education. The citizens of Appalachian Ohio know that setting their students up for success is one of the most beneficial things they can do for the region.
That’s why they’ve worked with FAO to create more than 50 scholarship funds that provide awards to support the pursuit of post-secondary education in the region. With over $420,000 in scholarships awarded through over 500 awards, students from Clermont to Ashtabula counties seeking to further their education are given the opportunity to reach their potential.
Each year FAO works with donors and its volunteer Scholarship Committee to award scholarships to students pursuing varied paths of post-secondary education across the 32 counties of Appalachian Ohio. Awarded through a competitive application process, FAO partners with more than 50 donor-established scholarship funds to honor the legacy and story behind each fund and the friend or loved ones each honors.
The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio’s mission is to create opportunities for Appalachian Ohio’s citizens and communities by inspiring and supporting philanthropy. More information regarding FAO’s scholarships and a full list of 2018 recipients can be found on FAO’s website, www.AppalachianOhio.org.
