Becoming a Nominee

Individual students cannot apply for the Cutler Scholars Program; potential scholars must be nominated by personnel at eligible secondary schools, by colleges of Ohio University, or by an organization with which they have a connection (e.g., an organization for which their parents work).

To be considered for a scholarship, a nominated student must show evidence of:

1. Scholarship

2. Leadership

3. Extracurricular Achievements

4. Moral Force of Character
