Continuous Achievement Scholarship
The Continuous Achievement Scholarship is intended to award an individual from each of the four undergraduate colleges of Ohio Northern University for their academic efforts and extracurricular involvement. The scholarship is meant to award students who have shown great improvement in their academic performance from high school into college and have additionally demonstrated a commitment to active involvement in the ONU community though initial University scholarship recognition may not reflect these on-campus contributions.
In order to qualify for this scholarship, students must have at least junior credit status at Ohio Northern University and have at least two quarters remaining prior to graduation (including the quarter of application). In addition, the student must demonstrate an exemplary academic record of at least a 3.25 cumulative grade point average and a continued contribution to the Ohio Northern community. Students are not eligible if they have previously received the highest academic scholarship amount in their appropriate level, i.e. Presidential, Trustee, Academic and Distinguished scholarships.
If interested in applying, please submit a completed application.
Recipients of the Continuous Achievement Scholarship will be selected by a committee made up of one staff member from each of Ohio Northern’s undergraduate colleges. A student representative will sit on the Committee at the appointment of Student Senate and an alumni representative will also serve on the committee. The Director of Financial Aid will serve as a non-voting committee member. The Final Selection Committee reserves the right to not award the Continuous Achievement Scholarship to a student per college if none of the applicants fit the overall highest standard the scholarship is intended to reflect.
The Continuous Achievement Scholarship recipients from each college will receive a printed award and have their name published for the Honors Day program and will be notified by their college ahead of time. One recipient from each of the four Undergraduate Colleges will be awarded $2,500 to be evenly credited across quarters to their tuition bill in addition to any other university scholarships. The scholarship is non-renewable and previous recipients are ineligible to reapply.
