This site provides access to online applications for scholarship programs managed by The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges (OFIC) through the Ohio Scholars Program® and Scholarship Management Resources (SMR). Students are invited to this site through announcements from their college financial aid office, OFIC, or an organization related to a specific scholarship program (such as PNC, Buckeye Corrugated, Allied Mineral Products, or Coastal Pet Products).
If you did not receive a scholarship announcement, you are most likely not eligible for these programs.
Please read the eligibility criteria carefully to make sure you are applying for the appropriate scholarship before you begin an application. Also be sure to read the eligibility questions carefully which are found at the beginning of an application.

First Time Users:
You will be asked to create an account in order to access the scholarship application. Please use the email address that you check most frequently and will still be using this spring. Use your own name and a password you will remember. Don't use the scholarship username or password you needed to access this page for your personal account.
Please note that your password must be eight characters long and contain characters from each of three groups:
- Lower case letters (i.e. a,b,c)
- Upper case letters (i.e. A,B,C)
- Numbers (i.e. 1,2,3)
- Alphanumeric characters or symbols (i.e. @,$,&)
A sample password is: Welcome1
To log in, you will be asked for the username and password you entered to create your account. The system retains any scholarship applications (on your the Applicant Home Page) to which you have previously started or completed. If you do not see the current scholarship application you are seeking, please be sure you have scrolled past previous years to the very bottom of your Applicant Home page.
