Nick McWilliams reporting – An education-related scholarship is available through the County Commissioners Association of Ohio.

The Ohio Counties Scholarship is now open for 2023, sponsored by the CCAO Research and Educational Foundation.

Graduating seniors in participating counties are urged to apply to help offset some of the cost of a college education.

One $2,000 scholarship will be offered in each of the five regions – Central, Southwest, Northwest, Northeast, and Southeast.

The funds will be payable after the CCAO has received confirmation of a student’s attendance at a university or college, or a vocational or trade school. The organization also states that students should be planning on a career in public service in the state.

The deadline to apply is May 5th, and more information is available at
