Annual Ohio Scholarships

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Applicants must be an employee or a dependent of an owner or employee (spouse, child, or grandchild) of an Ohio member in good standing of the Building Material Suppliers Association.
  • Employees must have been employed by the member company for one-year preceding January 1st of the award year.
  • The application and all supporting material must be postmarked (faxing is not permitted) by April 1st and received by BMSA to be eligible for consideration. Scholarship winners will be notified by May 31st.  

Scholarship awards are for one year in the amount of $1,000 each, payable in two installments of $500. The second installment is contingent upon passing grades for the prior term.
