About: The ONGSP will pay 100% of the tuition charges of state-assisted colleges and universities. For approved private or proprietary degree-granting institutions of higher education, the program will pay 100% of the average tuition charges of all state universities. The scholarship is available for up to twelve (12) full-time quarters or eight (8) full-time semesters. ONGSP is not available for courses not applicable to or leading to an Associate or Baccalaureate degree. Scholarship program recipients must maintain good attendance at their unit drills; excessive absenteeism is cause for discharge from the Ohio National Guard. In such cases, Ohio law provides for recoupment of a pro-rated amount of the tuition paid plus interest.
Eligibility: The only individuals eligible for this program are Ohio residents who have a high school diploma or GED certificate and who enlist, re-enlist, or extend their current enlistment for a total commitment of six years in the Ohio National Guard.
