Recognition of Choose Ohio First Scholarship recipients.

The Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program is a multi-million-dollar investment to be awarded to students, targeting universities and colleges recruiting Ohio residents into current science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) programs; supporting the increased success of students in those fields; and making substantive improvements to the pipeline of STEMM students and STEMM educators. It is one component of the Ohio Innovation Partnership designed to strengthen and reconstruct Ohio’s economy in industry sectors that are critical to Ohio’s economic success. The investment in scholarships and research, which will be leveraged with private funds from participating campuses and business partners, seeks to return the state to its former position of prominence as a world-renowned cradle of technology, invention and innovation.
