for Southern and Eastern Ohio


Choose Appalachian Teaching Scholarship Program 

The CAT scholarship program is for future adolescent-to-young-adult (AYA) mathematics and science teachers in southern and eastern Ohio. CAT scholarships are undergraduate scholarships for two, three, or four years in the amount of

  • $4,000 per year at Marietta College, Muskingum University, Ohio University Athens Campus, Shawnee State University, and the University of Rio Grande, and
  • $2,500 per year at Ohio University's regional campuses: Chillicothe, Eastern, Lancaster, Southern, and Zanesville.

CAT scholarships are a part of the Choose Ohio First scholarship program.

The CAT scholarship program will experience a lag year mandated by the Ohio Board of Regents in 2014–2015. During this time, no new CAT scholars will be added to the program. Current CAT scholars who meet the requirements for annual scholarship renewal will continue to receive scholarship support during academic year 2014–2015. If the Ohio Board of Regents provides continued funding for the CAT scholarship program, downloadable scholarship applications for new CAT scholars for the 2015–2016 academic year will be posted here in January 2015.
