Legacy Program

Legacy Program:

Are you a second- or third-generation Bobcat? For more than 200 years, Ohio University roots have run deep in Bobcat families, sometimes with two, three, and even four generations attending OHIO. We know this is a special distinction and we’re proud to honor it. If your family has a Bobcat legacy, you won’t want to miss out on the special events, scholarships, and discounts for legacy families, alumni and students. Tell us about your family’s Bobcat legacy.  Fill out the form.

Legacy Scholarship

The Ohio University Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship, created in 2003, helps children and grandchildren of Ohio University alumni continue the Bobcat tradition. Throughout history, many OHIO families have proudly shared the Ohio alumni experience. The Legacy Scholarship for 2017-2018 school year is currently closed.
