2018-2019 Ohio Special Project: The Department Scholarship Fund and Americanism & Government Test Trip
President Kathy Heichel selected the Department of Ohio Scholarship Fund as the Special Project for the 2018-19 year. College Bound students can use all the assistance they can get when it comes to funding their education and the Department of Ohio makes it one of its mission to support children and decedents of those who served our country. Ohio Offers several opportunities to students to apply and receive funds. This year President Kathy will be introducing the "Female Veteran's Scholarship" to women who have served and are seeking resources for additional education. To learn more about our Scholarship Opportunities go to the the Scholarship Page. Applications and information will be posted soon.
Department of Ohio Americanism and Government Test Trip to Washington DC
Equally as important as Ohio's Scholarship Fund is the Americanism and Government Test Trip. The American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary together fund a trip to Washington DC and surrounding historical locations providing education and exposure the Nation's Capital. This trip stops in Gettysburg VA, The White House, Halls of Congress, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and many more. Students are selected from the highest scores on the A&G Test that are given in schools. Once scored, essays are judged and students from all of Ohio are selected to attend the trip, paid completely by the Debarment of Ohio ALA and TAL.
