Ohio University's Veterans and Military Student Services Scholarship Fund exists to support student veterans whose benefits have been exhausted: whether due to degree change, longer program requirements, or for a variety of other reasons.

  • 3,000+ students who have indicated some form of military affiliation: mom, dad, or self
