Subject to funding available from the Ohio General Assembly, this scholarship program provides 100 percent tuition to Army and Air Guard members attending a two- or four-year public college or university. An equivalent amount that is the average state university tuition charge can be applied toward the costs at a private, proprietary institution. The scholarship is available for up to twelve full-time quarters or eight full-time semesters. Participants must commit to and/or complete a six-year enlistment in the Ohio Guard. New enlistees must complete basic training and obtain a military job skill to qualify for a scholarship. Waivers are available for those who have a delay of 90 days or more between enlistment and basic training or basic training and their AIT/AFSC training. Also, initial applicants who are prior service enlistees and can show evidence of at least 3 years of Active Duty service in a branch of the US Armed Forces may use the program with a 3-year enlistment in the Ohio National Guard. They must send a DD214 and a notarized 3-year waiver form along with their application. Prior Service participants are only eligible for six quarters or four semesters of scholarship assistance.
