BUCYRUS, OH – Ohio Mutual Insurance Group is pleased to announce a new college funding opportunity for Crawford County high school students.
Since 2009, Ohio Mutual has offered nearly $60,000 in college scholarships to graduating seniors at area high schools. These were one-time awards, and the selection was made by each school. Starting with the graduating class of 2018, Ohio Mutual is enhancing the opportunity for local college-bound students.
The Ohio Mutual Crawford Opportunity Award is an annually renewable $1,500 scholarship offered to three individuals either living in or attending school in Crawford County whose chosen field of collegiate study aligns with emerging opportunities in the insurance industry. The Award is renewable for up to two additional years, provided the recipient maintains a minimum collegiate GPA of 3.0/4, and recipients studying risk management or actuarial science will receive an additional $500 in the second and third years of the Award. An additional scholarship year is available to any recipient who also is selected for a summer internship at Ohio Mutual.
Applications will be available from the guidance counselors at all Crawford County public and private schools, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
