OTA Scholarship Information


In 1997, OTA decided to offer scholarships to the children of its members in order to support them in furthering their education.  To date, we have assisted hundreds of young people to pursue higher education.  No dues money is used in our scholarship program.  We rely solely on donations. 

To apply for an OTA scholarship you must be a child of a member who is contributing to the fund and a graduating high school senior. We pride ourselves on our ability to support almost all that apply with a stipend.  Please know, that you are not eligible if you have previously received this scholarship.

What You Need to Do:

  • Fill out the attached application (click here for application)
  • Submit a copy of your high school transcript
  • Submit the essay that is requested at the end of this document
  • Mail it to the OTA office by Friday, April 13, 2018


What We Will Do:

  • Review applications and send out notification of awards in May/June.
  • In September, after YOU have submitted proof of registration as a fulltime student, we will send your scholarship payment. (Proof of registration is a schedule of your classes with your name and ID number on it.  A letter of acceptance is not proof of registration.)
